The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

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.   ~From the Publisher

How could I resist a novel about a bookstore whose sign reads: “No Man is an Island: Every Book is a World” ? I could NOT put this book down!!

I hope you love this book as much as I did.

Happy Reading! Peggy@Woods
