Description


Celebrate the culture and fanaticism of book lovers with beloved illustrator Grant Snider’s I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf, a full-color graphic novel celebrating books, authors, and reading. With a striking package including a die-cut cover, it’s the perfect addition to any reader's bookshelf.
 
In this lighthearted collection of one- and two-page comics, writer-artist Grant Snider explores bookishness in all its forms, and the love of writing and reading, building on the beloved literary comics featured on his website, Incidental Comics.

"This is a delightful and humorous collection of comics about the joys of being a book lover, from collecting large amounts of books to (sometimes) getting around to reading them.”—Book Riot

“With I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf, Snider—an artist, writer and orthodontist—has gathered up a decade’s worth of his comics for boisterous bookworms into one convenient volume. Snider’s thoughtful cartoons for bibliophiles also reveal he’s a well-rounded reader himself.” —New York Times Book Review

“I confess:
I’m in love with books.
I read in social situations.
I will use anything as a bookmark.
I confuse fiction with reality.
I am wanted for unpaid library fines.
I steal books from my children.
I like my realism with a little bit of magic.
I like to sniff old books.”
