The New York Times give an excellent review to Harold Bloom's "How and Why to Read." I read the first hundred or so pages of this book, realized that I would need to read a whole bunch of additional books from the "canon" of literature to continue, and have begun, based on a list I made from those first hundred pages, reading them all. I found myself wishing that Bloom had given the reader a list of books that he thought they should read or that he mentioned in the book. Having said that, I really enjoyed the first hundred pages of this book, and I look forward to reading the rest eventually.
