I wanted to read something light and fun, found this book by chance at a rarely visited branch and it was the perfect choice. A great escape and wonderful story about dedicated librarian Nina whose beloved library is reorganized, the books discarded and she's out of job trying to figure out what to do with her life. Her crusade to rescue books and make them available to those who don't have access to a library and bookshop is a brilliant solution and such a worthy cause. It's not easy starting a new life, and I admire the heroine's courage and resourcefulness to pursue her heart. I also love the author's digs about libraries becoming more like coffee shops and less temples of books. I loved this book --- it made me happy and hopeful. I was more interested in how Nina goes about executing her plan than her romances. I agree that the book's title doesn't coincide with the plot. Still, it is definitely worth reading. I plan to check out author Jenny Colgan's other books.
