Week 16 – Shelf Pleasure 2016 Reading Challenge
This week on Shelf Pleasure, we’re reading The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. If you like books and reading as much as we do, you’ll enjoy this charming story about a youngish widower who owns a book store on fictional Alice Island. Fed up with the world around him after the death of his wife and the decline in book sales, A.J. is in for an unexpected surprise that changes his life forever. A wonderful reminder that when you open your heart great things can happen. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry manages to avoid the schmaltz while leaving you feeling good and maybe even a little hopeful.
