1. Great quotes. “Sometimes books don’t find us until the right time.”
2. Quirky in-a-good-way characters.
3. Literary references. “The Luck of Roaring Camp” by Bret Harte/1868. This is a story I have enjoyed and will enjoy again even if the A.J. Fikry of the title calls it “overly sentimental.”
4. The story takes place in a bookstore. Reading this book is a good way to spend more time in a bookstore.
5. You heart will ache for every character. The question is: Which one will you love the most?
There’s so much to love about this book. I’d like to run a contest to find out which character is your favorite or to list the greatest number of things you loved about it, and offer prizes. If you read this book tell us which character you loved the most. All comments are welcome.
