frankie posted a topic in General FictionI've just read this novel and I thought it was a wonderful read Has anyone else read the novel? Here's the synopsis from Amazon: A. J. Fikry, the irascible owner of Island Books, has recently endured some tough years: his wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and his prized possession--a rare edition of Poe poems--has been stolen. Over time, he has given up on people, and even the books in his store, instead of offering solace, are yet another reminder of a world that is changing too rapidly. Until a most unexpected occurrence gives him the chance to make his life over and see things anew. Gabrielle Zevin’s enchanting novel is a love letter to the world of books--an irresistible affirmation of why we read, and why we love. It was really a book that I came by accidentally on Goodreads, it wasn't recommended to me by anyone I know. But it was a book about books and people so of course it made its way to my wishlist It was very much a book I wanted to love, and fortunately I did find myself sucked into the novel right from the start and loved every page of it
