The Bookshop on the Corner

The Bookshop on the Corner

Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion… and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more.

Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile—a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling.

From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there’s plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that’s beginning to feel like home… a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

    Loved all the bookshop and book talk, and that's about it. Nina was a mousy bore and clumsy idiot to boot. The only parts where she was interesting was when she was trying to change her life and was i...

    Awww, I loved this book about a librarian getting laid off from her readers' advisory job and opening a "bookshop-on-wheels" in Scotland. A tad predictable but so what, it was a fun journey. I was a p...

    This was a sweet, though not too sweet, story about a young woman at loose ends who dreams of her own bookshop (I could identify). The story is a little predictable, but I rather enjoyed it. I have be...

    This book was a fun fast read that was a love letter to book lovers everywhere. A book seller with a book van instead of a shop , a small quaint town , handsome guy , and tons of books equals a recipe...
