Tom Mole's most recent book is The Secret Life of Books (Elliott & Thompson, 2019). It’s about all the things we do to books and all the things they do to us. Christopher de Hamel called it ‘probably the most compulsive text ever penned about what it means to handle and possess a book’.
No need to book or register; just show up.
