This morning's edition of BookPageXTRA is all about nonfiction books about books, authors and reading.

We've raved here on the blog about this genre before, from nonfiction editor Kate's post on The Magician's Book (about C.S. Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia) to web editor Trisha's post on biographies about and fiction inspired by the life of Louisa May Alcott.

In XTRA, we highlighted five 2011 books:

A Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz; The Wilder Life by Wendy McClure; The Reading Promise by Alice Ozma; Reading My Father by Alexandra Styron; and Elizabeth Bishop and The New Yorker edited by Joelle Biele.
