paperback    ISBN 13: 9780992636401 | ISBN 10: 099263640x

"I have so much enjoyed An Everywhere. It is a brilliant travel guide to the city of books: the city we hold within us, and the one we share with all its other citizens. I love Heather's passion for reading and the blend of erudition and intimacy that she brings to the discussion of what reading is and what books can do within a life. It is such a truthful book, honest about panic and anguish, and fascinating about what happens when the panic ebbs and the reader continues."
(Helen Dunmore)
During several months for treatment for a serious illness, the writer decides to turn a necessary evil into an opportunity: the luxury of reading whatever takes her fancy.
 
An Everywhere: A Little Book About Reading is a quietly passionate and witty defence of the joys and consolations of reading in both the difficult and day-to-day aspects of our lives.
"This is a gem of a book, one to read and to carry around like a bible - not just a guide to great literature but as a reminder that reading is the highest form of religion. Heather Reyes' An Everywhere: A Little Book About Reading is a great example of that which it explores, books that can take us anywhere and everywhere. An Everywhere... is part good-read guide, part travel guide, part memoir. Reyes writes with the imagination and the skill of the writer, the heart of a reader, the forbearance and wisdom of the patient and the expertise of the well-travelled."
(Cheryl Moskowitz)
