Favorite Reads of 2010: The Book in the Renaissance

It's that time of year again--your friendly neighborhood librarians are eager to tell you about their favorite reads of 2010. Here is Morgan L. with a review:

Unbelievable. Tim hands me a book off his item check cart that’s right up my alley--Andrew Pettegree’s The Book in the Renaissance. I find understanding the advent of print in the 15th Century very helpful in wrapping my mind around the massive changes, not only technical but psychological and cultural, that attend and will attend our 21st-century shift to computers. If you’re into the late medieval/early modern period, I think you’ll enjoy Mr. Pettegree.
