I found this little gem on Goodreads and really enjoyed it! It’s a sweet, easy read that made me smile lots and sad a few times. In the beginning A.J. is lonely and depressed with every aspect of his life, including the failing bookstore he owns. One day he goes for a run and when he returns his life is unexpectedly changed forever.
Barnes and Noble says:
“A. J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. But when a mysterious package appears at the bookstore, its unexpected arrival gives Fikry the chance to make his life over–and see everything anew.”
This is the perfect book for your next trip – or if you’re like me….the kid’s next extra long soccer practice <wink>
