Humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all loveā€“love of books and bookish people.

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 poems by Edgar Allen Poe, has been stolen. When a mysterious package appears at the bookstore, its unexpected arrival gives him the chance to make his life over.   A.J. Fikry is a prickly character with many strong opinions, he filters his experiences, and thoughts, with references to his favorite books. 
Narration by Scott Brick makes this cast of characters engaging, real and just quirky enough to be a perfectly entertaining book to listen to.
