The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

By Gabrielle Zevin

New York Times Best Seller, #1 Indie Next Pick, and #1 Library Reads Selection.

This is the story of A.J. Fikry: bookstore owner, widower, Poe enthusiast. A.J.'s life has not turned out the way he had envisioned. After his beloved wife died at an early age, his bookstore's sales dwindled and his rare Edgar Allan Poe book, Tamerlane, was stolen. 

Life was looking very bleak for A.J. until a mysterious package turned up on his doorstep changing his life forever. This coupled with a new friendship with quirky publishing sales rep, Amelia, begins a transformation in A.J.'s relationship with others and his view of the world.

I loved this book. It is so different from anything that I have read. Give it a try!
