my take: This is just fun. If you love book stores, if you love books, if you love love triumphing over loss, you’ll love this.

Each chapter is based on a different literary work and starts with a mini book review … the kind you might write on a 3×5 card (or something a bit fancier if the bookstore is inclined) and hang on the shelf under the book for customers to peruse … written by the A.J. Firky, the fictional bookstore owner. Which is one reason I loved it.

The setting is mostly in the bookstore, so what’s not to love? I bought it in hardcover, so please borrow.

my verdict: fun ~ worth a read ~ very quick
