Roger Mifflin is who I want to be when I grow up. He has the absolute best ideas about what it means to be a used book bookseller. I started reading this book years ago and life got in the way. I recently found it as an audiobook. While the reader is not my favorite, I love the character so much I could easily overlook the voice. I feel every HPB employee should find a copy and read it. Not for the mystery but for the ideas Roger shares about what it means to be in the very business we are in. We are a noble profession. Healers even. I am inspired!
There's more than just bookworms in this well-read store--this shop is haunted, and book lovers are welcome at their own risk.
