When a child is born, I once explained to the kids, some dads lay down bottles of wine for them that will mature when they grow up into ungrateful adults. Instead, what you’re going to get from me, as each of you turns sixteen, is a library of the one hundred books that gave me the most pleasure when I was a know-nothing adolescent.

Paul Giamatti is absolutely adorable in this. Dustin Hoffman as his father is incredibly awesome. This movie is so endearing. Definitely worth watching.
