The secret lives of booksellers and librarians : true stories of the magic of reading / James Patterson and Matt Eversmann with Chris Mooney.

Patterson, James, 1947- (author.). Eversmann, Matt, (author.). Mooney, Chris, (author.).


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. -- Provided by publisher.
