Island Books is owned by a grumpy widower who discovers a lone 2-year-old in his stacks.
I enjoyed this story. It had an array of topics that produced just as many emotions, and the book talk throughout was delightful. However, I think it would lose a lot of its charm, if one doesn't know the books in which were mentioned. Glad I listened to it, but it didn't touch me like it has others, which seems to be the story of my reading life. :)
