The Man Who Loved Books Too Much
- The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession
- By: Allison Hoover Bartlett
- Narrated by: Judith Brackley
- Length: 6 hrs and 7 mins
John Charles Gilkey is an obsessed, unrepentant book thief who has stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of rare books from book fairs, stores, and libraries around the country. Ken Sanders is the self-appointed "bibliodick" (book dealer with a penchant for detective work) driven to catch him. Journalist Allison Hoover Bartlett befriended both eccentric characters and found herself caught in the middle of efforts to recover hidden treasure.
