This sounds good! Let us know how it reads!

I read this a month or two ago and liked it very much. Reading about book lovers is always exciting, and I liked the characters. There is mystery and there is intrigue, but, mostly, I just wanted to go to the bookstore and meet all the patrons who love books as much as I do.

Lucy

Read it. Loved it.
As a former book seller, I found it to be a manifesto on intellegient reading.
Not "do you have that blue book that was on Oprah's show last summer?"
It took a bit getting into. The beginning is a bit disjointed, but I persevered and am so glad I did. The mysterious beginnings all came together, so don't give up.

Joan and Lucy, great to hear that you both enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to it.

Mystica

I cant believe I was able to pick this up today. Well it will have to be read quickly! Leaving tomorrow.

Jodie

People getting threats because their bookstore is too good does sound interesting. Was it Waterstones what done it?;)
