Read in July, 2012

Reason for Reading: Like everyone else I was enchanted with the short film when it came out and linked it on my blog and FB right away. When I saw the book was out I just had to read it!

An absolutely wonderful, whimsical story for book lovers of all ages. A delightful story that just lets one become enraptured with the celebration of books and the story they tell. And even though this "book" is available in true book form here, as a movie, on an ereader and originally as an ipod app, it truly honours the traditional book form in all its ancient glory. The story is joyous and yet slightly bittersweet, leaving one with the feeling that no matter what happens in the future, true books will always be with us in our heart of hearts. We just won't let them go!
