In My Bookstore 89 of our favourite writers-from Elin Hilderbrand, to John Grisham, to Dave Eggers-express their adoration and admiration for their favourite bookstores and booksellers. The relationship between a writer and his or her local bookstore can last for years or even decades. Often it is the author`s local store that supported him during the early days of his career and that works tirelessly to introduce his work to new readers. But authors are also readers and customers just like us. For them, as for most of us, bookstores also serve as the anchor for our communities, the place that introduces us to new ideas (and new neighbours), and that sets our children on the path to becoming lifelong readers and lovers of books. Brimming with original, deeply moving, funny, and exceedingly well-crafted tributes to bookstores all across the country, from Longfellow Books in Portland, Maine (Ron Currie, Jr.) to Powells City of Books in Portland, Oregon (Chuck Palahniuk) and everywhere in between, My Bookstore is a joyful celebration of our bricks-and-mortar stores and a clarion call to readers everywhere at a time when the value and importance of these stores should be shouted from the rooftops.
