There is something about books set in Japan, books set in Japanese bookstores that make me smile. This is the second in a series but can be read as a standalone. What this book (and the first one) does is allow you to wander and to linger in a bookstore, make new friends, find new books and think about your life and family.

This is a simple story that is so powerful and warm. It’s a snapshot of life in a bookshop in a small neighbourhood. Uncle Satoru owns and operates this store with his wife and niece. Day to day, we find out about what makes this place work, what makes the people inside it and introduces us to Uncle Satoru’s family.

This bookshop saves Takako’s life in many ways. When the uncle goes on a holiday that she gifts him to say thank you for the support, strange things start to happen. What happens next was a heart-warming tale and one that got me all emotional if I’m honest!

There’s a paragraph that choked me up –  “When I am sad, I read. I can go on reading for hours. Reading quiets the turmoil I feel inside and brings me peace. Because when I’m immersed in the world of a book, no one can get hurt,”

This book will destroy your emotions. Totally worth it.
