Read full description of the books:I am SO disappointed that there are NO reviews of this book on GoodReads! What could be a better title for all book lovers than to hear the tale of one of the ORIGINAL book lovers, who traveled an entire country to find new books, who painstakingly copied each book that he could (books at this time were primarily in monasteries and were often guarded jealously!), who caused a BATTLE over the right to copy a book (that does seem to be going a bit too far...!), who spent his entire life in the pursuit of acquiring more and more BOOKS in a time when books were scarce and many argued that their multiplication would lead to the extinction of the bards! Columba was an Irish saint in 521 and ended up copying three hundred copies of the New Testament in his own hand so that churches across Scotland (where he was a missionary) could have their own Bible! Even though this is a "kid's" book, I think it should be read by every book lover!
