Asked at the Desk: Bookshop Fiction

Picture of Fiction/AV/Teen desk

J. R. R. Tolkien wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost.” Book lovers know the anticipation, excitement and joy they experience when wandering a bookshop, not quite sure what they are looking for until they’ve found it. This is why the allure of bookshops is so strong, and why a recent patron who visited the desk was inquiring about a publishing trend: bookshop fiction. If you’d like to explore some of these books yourself, check out the following titles:
