The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry - Gabrielle Zevin - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry:

The beautiful story of a baby in a bookstore.

My favorite Gabrielle Zevin quote from the book:

"She is seventy, and she believes you try new things or you may as well die."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What do you do when you lose someone you love?

What is your favorite book?

My review of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry:

A book about a book lover in a bookstore.  What's not to love?

A warm, fuzzy, feel-good story.

A good "front of the fire" book.
