This book is a hommage to reading and the importance of books and libraries. In five stories the author shows how reading books recommended by a librarian can change people's attitudes towards life and their behaviour. Each story has a different lesson / philosophical insight. I enjoyed the collection and seeing some characters from the first few stories popping up in later ones.
