Dangerously Good Books

A Novel Bookstore book coverImagine a store that sells books, but only good books.  Modern novels, classics, or something in between, any title you pull from the shelf is a guaranteed gem.  This is the story of The Good Novel, the pet project of French booksellers Ivan and Francesca.  Who decides whether a book will be sold?  Eight authors, who serve on a top-secret committee, each submit a list of 600 titles which are automatically added to the shelves.  Everything is done in the strictest confidence, and the members are unknown even to each other.  When three are terrorized, Ivan and Francesca realize the authors must have been exposed.  Read A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cossé not only to find out what happens but also to rekindle your love of worthy books.
