From Inside My Book Fort - - - "The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin


Welcome to the book fort.

Today we're reading a passage from Gabrielle Zevin's delightful novel, "The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry."

Another of my favorite books.

If you're a lover of books, then you're also a lover of bookstores.  I think you'll want to give this one a try if you haven't already.

A.J. Fikry is a lover of books and the grumpy owner of a bookstore on Alice Island.

If you've already read it and love it as much as I do, I hope you'll enjoy the passage I've chosen.

From the book jacket, "As surprising as it is moving, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry is an unforgettable tale of transformation and second chances, an irresistible affirmation of why we read, and why we love."

I love your fort, Kaye, but aren't you worried that a frolicking dog will pull down the quilt and smash those lovely pots? (Aren't they from Ben Owen?)

If she ever does that, I'm sending her to live with you and Joe (won't Joe love that?!). Those pieces are some of Boyd Owens' pieces, Margaret. I bought one when you took me by there, but after that he started selling some of his work through Bolick's shop in Blowing Rock. I had to stop going in there!
