Description

This “celebration of the world of books” (Kirkus) serves up “comfort food for bookworms” (Publishers Weekly) in true stories from the booksellers and librarians—the superheroes of reading—as told to the greatest storyteller of our time, James Patterson.  

To be a bookseller or librarian…
 
You have to play detective. 
 
Be a treasure hunter. A matchmaker. An advocate. A visionary. 
 
A person who creates “book joy” by pulling a book from a shelf, handing it to someone and saying, “You’ve got to read this. You’re going to love it.”
 
Step inside The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians and enter a world where you can feed your curiosities, discover new voices, find whatever you want or require. This place has the magic of rainbows and unicorns, but it's also a business. The book business.  
 
Meet the smart and talented people who live between the pages—and who can’t wait to help you find your next favorite book.
