I like exploring books in bookstores. I also enjoy reading about bookstores in books. Truth be told, fiction about bookstores is especially pleasing to me. Happily, when I’m in the mood to read another novel that centers on a bookstore, it’s easy to find one. Even setting aside mysteries, for no other reason than the sheer numbers of them set in bookstores, there remain plenty of bookstore novels – some shelved in historical fiction, others in general fiction, and even some in the romance section.
