I liked the idea of this book. Owners of independent bookstores across the country were interviewed to compile lists of their favorite reads. However, the author doesn't provide any type of summary for most of the books listed. I doubt I'll research the plots to hundreds of different novels to decide whether or not I may want to read a given book.

Each list is prefaced with some information about the bookstore and the way the owner/representative of the bookstore finds his/her own books to read. Lots of the replies were vary standard and I felt other information could have been provided instead of what was given. I was able to find several booksellers with taste similar to mine and have examined their lists more carefully. Hopefully I'll find some new and interesting things to read!
