THE MAN WHO LOVED BOOKS TOO MUCH by Allison Hoover Bartlett
Unrepentant book thief Gilkey has stolen a fortune in rare books from around the country. Yet unlike most thieves, who steal for profit, Gilkey steals for love—the love of books. Perhaps equally obsessive is Ken Sanders, the self-appointed "bibliodick" driven to catch him. Following this eccentric cat-and-mouse chase with a mixture of suspense, insight, and humor, Allison Hoover Bartlett plunges the reader deep into a rich world of fanatical book lust and considers what it is that makes some people willing to stop at nothing to possess the titles they love.
