I had wanted to read this memoir for quite some time and I finally had a chance to pick the book up on a discount. It was well worth the wait as I found the story inspiring on both a personal level, and on a level of giving books an important place in our lives. This was the type of story that made me think about my life, but also made me want to read more than I ever have before. The idea that the author used the books she read every day as a way to cope with loss in her life is both satisfying and a tool for others to learn from. Good stuff and recommended to all lovers of books.
