“My big brother reaches home in the dark hours before dawn, when even ghosts take their rest.  He smells of steel and coal and forge.  He smells of the enemy.  He folds his scarecrow body through the window, bare feet silent on the rushes.  A hot desert wind blows in after him, rustling the limp curtains.  His sketchbook falls to the floor, and he nudges it under his bunk with a quick foot, as if it’s a snake.  Where have you been, Darin…  Every night for almost two years, I’ve wanted to ask… But tonight’s different.  I know what’s in his sketchbook.  I know what it means…”

“The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry” by Gabrielle Zevin.  “A New York Times Bestseller, a #1 Indie Next Pick, and a #1 LibraryReads Selection.  This novel has humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all love–love of books and bookish people and, really, all of humanity in its imperfect glory. Eowyn Ivey, author of The Snow Child 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.”   –from amazon.com

 

“How to Find Love in a Bookshop” by Vernica Henry.  The enchanting story of a bookshop, its grieving owner, a supportive literary community, and the extraordinary power of books to heal the heart.
