A Pound of Paper: Confessions of a Book Addict by John Baxter

This is the sometimes hilarious, sometimes offensive, sometimes touching, but always entertaining memoir of Baxter's inexorable slide (or mystic ascension, depending on your point of view) into the world of book collecting. I take exception to his assertion that "librarians don't read," but enjoyed his descriptions of fellow book collectors and their antics.
