**I purchased this book with my own money.There was no obligation to post/give this book a certain rating.
Book Love is a gift book of comics tailor-made for tea-sipping, spine-sniffing, book-hoarding bibliophiles. Debbie Tung’s comics are humorous and instantly recognizable—making readers laugh while precisely conveying the thoughts and habits of book nerds. Book Love is the ideal gift to let a book lover know they’re understood and appreciated.
I love illustrated books and when it is all about books and bibliophile life, it is even more appealing. I knew I had to buy the hardcover for it would make a wonderful coffee table book.
A cartoonist and illustrator, Debbie Tung shares her love of reading in this delightful collection of cartoons. It is like a beautiful comic strip comprising charming illustrations and the book can be read in one day.
The illustrations were beautiful and the ones with dialogue were spot-on. Most of the pages hit home and I could see myself doing many of the things that the book lover in the illustrations did. I believe everyone who loves books would see themselves in the pages.
Some of my favorite parts were:
1. having so many books on my WTR pile, but I keep adding more;
2. how to get more reading done;
3. being in the middle of a book and looking forward to starting another one;
4. staying up all night to finish your current read
5. the undeniable pull of a bookstore no matter how many unread books you have at home
…and many many more!
If you love books, not only for what is inside, but just for being around them, their smell, holding them, bookmarking them, and reading them (of course), then you will love this book.
It would also make the most thoughtful gift for any book lover. Book Love allows every book fan to feel validated and warmhearted about our beloved pastime.
Every bookworm will find something to love about Book Love!

This comic book sounds absolutely delightful. My TBR pile is looking at me resentfully thinking about picking up yet another book, but they know I love all books. Your book review format is open and easy to read – I really liked you presentation.
