April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Gabrielle Zevin stopped by Schuler Books earlier this evening to promote the release of her new book, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry. I hadn't read anything by Zevin before and I got to the bookstore a little early, so I grabbed a copy of the book, sat down in the cafe and started reading. I wasn't able to finish the book before the signing started, but what I read of it I loved. The book is funny and touching and Zevin clearly has a love of books and bookstores that she poured right into this novel. I can't wait to finish!
