Books About Books

 
A true book lover rejoices over books, people who love books and books about people who love books. 

Here are some subjects of my recent bookish enjoyment:

   

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

by Gabrielle Zevin 

Despite living in a beautiful location, running a successful bookstore and enjoying the taste of the cheaper wine in life, A.J.'s existence seems empty and sad. Then one night he stumbles upon a spunky toddler left in his bookstore and his world is turned upside down. 
 
This is a beautiful story of love between father and adoptive child and how a twist in the pattern of one's life can at times result in so much good. 
 
 
 
 

The Little Paris Bookshop

by Nina George

Frenchman Monsieur Perdu runs a barge bookstore parked on the Seine. He knows which books will treat which broken heart, he sells books that heal broken people, while he seems to be the only man in Paris whose heartbreak he cannot cure.
 
If you love Paris and if you love books, then you will adore this ode to literature story.

by Charlie Lovett
