"Completely winning... Clearly a masterpiece... A Reader's Book of Days is any reader's delight." -- Michael Dirda "The world's least useful, most wonderful reference book, a masterpiece with a wry sensibility... Whether you browse at random or read a page a day, this book will delight." -- Camila Domonoske "A treasure hunt between book covers - and my new favorite gift book... This book is a joy... [Nissley] is a marvelous storyteller." -- Elizabeth Taylor "Tantalizing long entries on such writerly topics as day jobs, marriage, mothers, Melville, sports, and suicide." -- Mary Norris "Essential... Terrifically fun." -- Kate Tuttle "Eclectic and wide-ranging... Delightfully illustrated." "Charming, funny, beguiling, this literary miscellany combines true events in writers' lives and fictional events in their books. The perfect gift for any reader." "Oh, this is a true delight!" -- Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love "Brilliant, fascinating, and fun!" -- Ken Jennings, Jeopardy! champion and author of Because I Said So!


Those who know Tom Nissley simply as a Jeopardy! stud, prepare to be amazed. He's more than just a gutsy wonk with a photographic memory; as A Reader's Book of Days establishes for all time, he's witty, erudite, and sweet-natured, and he has a gorgeous prose style to boot. Beware: read one of these pages and you're hooked. --Blake Bailey, author of Cheever: A Life"
