This was hilarious and endearing; if you're a bibliophile you will love it, if you're not a bibliophile you may become one. Since there's no description for this (for shame!); this is the story of an unexpected adventure by an unlikely adventurer - a middle aged, overweight, spinster who has been looking after her brother for decades with no thought for herself, or notion that she could do anything for herself. When a strange little gingersnap of a man comes by with a wagon full of books (a roaming book store) he wishes to sell to her brother, she stops the transaction in the most logical way she can think of - buying them herself. I finished it in one sitting and can't wait to read more by the author.

I really enjoyed this book. Good characters, well developed plot, and a love of books, what more could you ask for.
