I’ve been thinking about trying some essay collections, so I asked on Twitter what people would recommend. I got so many good responses that I wanted to share then, so I’ve put them together on Storify here. There are also a few tweets that I wasn’t able to add to the main story:

Anne Fadiman’s bookish ones are brilliant (Ex Libris; At Large) and Christopher Hitchens – anything by him.
