Books Info:

Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading free pdf "It's not that I don't like people," writes Maureen Corrigan in her introduction to "Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading." "It's just that there always comes a moment when I'm in the company of others--even my nearest and dearest--when I'd rather be reading a book." In this delightful memoir, Corrigan reveals which books and authors have shaped her own life--from classic works of English literature to hard-boiled detective novels, and everything in between. And in her explorations of the heroes and heroines throughout literary history, Corrigan's love for a good story shines.
