The Little Paris Bookshop

Here are a few descriptions from The Little Paris Bookshop, by Nina George. (It’s not found on the shelves of our store. I do read other books than those in our inventory.)

From page 1
It is a common misconception that booksellers looked after books. They look after people. 

From page 34
Some novels are loving, lifelong companions; some give you a clip around the ear; others are friends who wrap you in warm towels when you’ve got those autumn blues. And some.. well, some are pink candy floss that tingles in your brain for three seconds and leaves a blissful void. Like a short, torrid love affair.

From page 42
Often it’s not we who shape words, but the words we use that shape us.
