The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians: Their Stories Are Better Than the Bestsellers

Regular price $28.00
This "celebration of the world of books" (Kirkus) serves up "comfort food for bookworms" (Publishers Weekly) in true stories from the booksellers and librarians--the superheroes of reading--as told to the greatest storyteller of our time, James Patterson.

To be a bookseller or librarian...

You have to play detective.

Be a treasure hunter. A matchmaker. An advocate. A visionary.

A person who creates "book joy" by pulling a book from a shelf, handing it to someone and saying, "You've got to read this. You're going to love it."

Step inside The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians and enter a world where you can feed your curiosities, discover new voices, find whatever you want or require. This place has the magic of rainbows and unicorns, but it's also a business. The book business.

Meet the smart and talented people who live between the pages--and who can't wait to help you find your next favorite book.
