You always have an ever-growing TBR list.

You believe what people read says a lot about them...and even more if they don’t read. 

Your favorite gifts to get and give are books. 

You believe nothing beats the smell of books, old and new. 

Your favorite place to be is a bookstore or somewhere quiet to read. 

You don’t need sleep when you’re in the middle of a really good book. 

You experience frequent reading hangovers and wish your favorite characters were real people. 

Your vacation pack list includes at least two books.  

Your books are your most prized possessions, and you dream of having a library to show them off in. 
Read Bookish People to jump into the lives of like-minded book lovers! 
A perfect storm of comedic proportions erupts in a DC bookstore over the course of one soggy summer week—narrated by two very different women and punctuated by political turmoil, a celestial event, and a perpetually broken vacuum cleaner. 
Independent bookstore owner Sophie Bernstein is burned out on books. Mourning the death of her husband, the loss of her favorite manager, her only child’s lack of aspiration, and the grim state of the world, she fantasizes about going into hiding in the secret back room of her store. 
Meanwhile, renowned poet Raymond Chaucer has published a new collection, and rumors that he’s to blame for his wife’s suicide have led to national cancellations of his publicity tour. He intends to set the record straight—with an ultra-fine-point Sharpie—but only one shop still plans to host him: Sophie’s. 
Fearful of potential repercussions from angry customers, Sophie asks Clemi—bookstore events coordinator, aspiring novelist, and daughter of a famed literary agent—to cancel Raymond’s appearance. But Clemi suspects Raymond might be her biological father, and she can’t say no to the chance of finding out for sure. 
This big-hearted screwball comedy features an intergenerational cast of oblivious authors and over-qualified booksellers—as well as a Russian tortoise named Kurt Vonnegut Jr.—and captures the endearing quirks of some of the best kinds of people: the ones who love good books.
