Opinion

From Library Staff

The Haunted Bookshop started me on a lifetime obsession with books. I found it in the old Lincoln City Bookstore when I was twelve. I'm thankful because it was the first book I ever read with a character who loved books as much as I did so I knew that it was okay to love them. -Renee B.

I read this book after enjoying Parnassus on Wheels. Same characters plus a mystery, right after World War II. And a sweet romantic side story but not sappy. I really enjoy how the author sometimes talks directly to the reading audience; mostly the characters reveal themselves through their dialog, but occasionally he comments directly to us. Delightful book.
