“I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.”
How true do you think this is? Can you think of a time when you happened to find just the right book at the right time? Is there a book that you rely on and re-read in certain moods or at certain times of the year?
And here are some good questions from the publisher’s reader’s guide:
“What differences did you note between bookselling in the novel and bookselling in your world? What makes book lovers unique, across all generations?”
“Do you agree with Isola that ‘reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones’?”
