This is a cute collection of short stories with one supposed common thread, books. However, all of the stories seemed really one note to me and quite similar. Each was supposed to be about a different character, but they were all so similar I could imagine that the same person was the heroine in each story. It read a bit like a sappy ABC mini-series, but there were a few charming stories buried in the mix.

Language-wise I think this is an easy, approachable read for non-native readers of Japanese
