I picked up and started reading, today, a book I bought a long time ago, Nabokov's Butterfly: And Other Stories of Great Authors and Rare Books by Rick Gekoski. So far, I love it. It's the kind of literary gossip I enjoy most. If you are also a biography-obsessed bibliophile, I recommend Gekoski's book as a fun read, albeit I am only up to the chapter on Lord of the Flies (Chapter 3, I believe). I appreciate the blend of personal anecdote and history lesson Gekoski does best, all with a dose of rather proud self-deprecation.

Oh, and just because I couldn't resist:
