Wow. I seriously loved this book. It's hard for me to explain what I loved about this book, but I had a feeling when I was reading it that it was classic. It was just good writing and a good story, you can't go wrong with that.
I loved Van and Francesca's passion for good literature. Each time they spoke of an author I had this urge to find an awesome bookstore like this one and find some great novels to read. I didn't read this book in one sitting or even one day. Instead, I took this book with me and only read it when I knew I would be able to cherish several chapters at once. Each moment I had with this book was special (I'm so lame, right?). I just felt that I couldn't get deep enough into the book.
Can I take a moment hear to rave about Europa editions? I've read two EE books so far, this one and Broken Glass Park and I've thoroughly enjoyed each one. Better yet, I felt compelled to share both of these books with others because to me, they were special stories. I've looked through their catalog and have found about 10 other books I want, and I even bought one (darn my New Year's book-ban!) January 1 cannot get here fast enough so I can start buying books again! Also the covers are to die for. I cannot even handle the gorgeousness of each cover. Okay - enough gushing! Read this book, it's fabulous!
