April. Read this book in one sitting, one Sunday afternoon. I was grinning and I felt happy almost all the way through the storied life of A.J. It was sweet and sad and happy, full of love and BOOKS! “My life is in these books....Read these and know my heart. We are not quite novels.... We are not quite short stories.... In the end, we are collected works.”
A.J. Fikry’s storied life is one worth sharing. BOOK REVIEW: “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry,” by Gabrielle Zevin
Love, love, love! A book lover's dream book. Got to the end and wanted to start all over again! Add this to your must read list. Now.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. Our August, 2014 Book Club read. We all liked it - all would love to see it made into a movie. I especially liked the way each chapter begins with a "book report" of a short story. I now want to explore reading short stories :-)!
November/December 2014 book group read The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: A Novel by Gabrielle Zevin,http://www.amazon.com/dp/1616203218/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_P0uAtb1BYV01S122

Book Jacket for: The storied life of A. J. Fikry : a novel
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. A must read for all book lovers. “In this sweet, uplifting homage to bookstores, Zevin perfectly captures the joy of connecting people and books. . . . Filled with interesting characters, a deep knowledge of bookselling, funny depictions of book clubs and author events, this will prove irresistible to book lovers everywhere." ~Booklist. “Zevin has done something old-fashioned and fairly rare these days. She has written an entertaining novel, modest in its scope, engaging and funny without being cloying or sentimental. On top of all that, it is marvelously optimistic about the future of books and bookstores and the people who love both." ~The Washington Post.

Dark and delicious tale of Edgar Allan Poe, his young and sickly wife Virginia, and his mistress Frances Osgood.

Greenwich village - NYC - A mystery based on true facts but with a large sprinkling of artistic license which makes a tale about one of the most mysterious writers very very intriguing!
Edgar Allan Poe's macabre life and mysterious death at age 40 continues to fascinate (in fact, the Morgan Library in Manhattan is just finishing up an exhibition that explores the poet's works and influence). This haunting novel traces the love triangle involving Poe, Frances Sargent Osgood (a poet deserted by her philandering husband), and Poe's deathly ill wife. Such fun.

The authors interviewed 639 women asking about how they dress, using questions such as, “Are you ever making a political statement with your clothing?” “How does your culture, ethnicity, or background influence your decisions about what to wear?” “Which is more important: taste or style? Which one do you have more of?” There are no pictures, no trends or “hottest fashions for this fall,’ just an insightful look at how we choose to wear what we do. -Georgie Donovan, Associate Dean of Librari...

Flowers for Algernon is probably one of the best books I've ever read even though it makes me cry like a baby at the end. It makes you appreciate the life you have, the people you have around you and makes you realize how much you actually take for granted.
