This is the kind of book many people would flip through in the bookstore, or browse while at a friend's house. Not me! I read the whole thing cover to cover. It was a little bit inspirational (if you like that tattoo kind of thing), a little bit nerdy, and a little bit didactic. Also, fun.

Interesting to see the quotes (& learn the reasons behind the choice of that particular author or book) that people have had inked on their bodies. Most are beautiful -- a notch above the average tattoo --and many duplicate the type font and layout of the book's text. I am not interested in tattoos at all, but the literary choices and the care people have taken to make these beautiful makes this an intriguing and quick read.
