Nina's sister, Anne-Marie, dies. How can Nina go on? She tries doing everything for everyone and exhausts herself. Nina decides to honor her sister by doing something both she and her sister loved to do; she decides to read and review a book a day for a year. Most of the reading takes place in an old purple chair. And the result is this little book, a nice account of Nina's year of reading and reflecting.
