100 Books about Books

If you love to read, you might enjoy reading a book that describes or tells about other books. For instance, I just recently watched "The Novel Murders" from the Hallmark Movies, I taped it. It has the main character searching through books she has read looking for a mystery that matches the one that just happened. They look at 3 different stories. Agatha Christie's "A Murder in Three Acts," and 2 others that I don't remember, I only remembered the Agatha Christie, because I like Agatha Christie, but I know that if I get a chance, I will look up the other books mentioned and read them, too.
