Cover love

28372019

I try very hard not to judge a book by its cover. However, I have been known - on more than one occasion - to buy a book because I love the cover. That is exactly what happened with The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan. It did help that I also loved the description of the book, which is:

Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion… and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more.

Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile—a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling. 

From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there’s plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that’s beginning to feel like home… a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

I've started the book today and there is a quote in the front that I LOVE:

""Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world."
