trade-size paperback.

from the back cover:
Caught up in grief after the death of her sister, Nina Sankovitch decided to stop running and start reading. For once in her life she would put all other obligations on hold and devote herself to reading a book a day: one year of magical reading in which she found joy, healing, and wisdom.

Touches somewhat on what she was reading but more on what was going on around her while she was reading.

I was intrigued by the idea of reading a book a day for an entire year, and she has four children! I don’t read that fast, but I would love an entire week devoted to reading, without obligations.

Some parts of this memoir resonated with me. I enjoyed reading about her mother’s Christmas crèche. But overall, I felt the author was heavy-handed with the meaning of it all, the beauty of life, going on living without guilt, etc.

I’m releasing Tolstoy and the Purple Chair at the 2019 BC Convention in Mainz.
