Aggie's Fiction Pick for July 2023

Books about bookstores and the transformative power of books cast a magic spell on avid readers and booksellers alike! It tells a story of an elderly bookseller Carl whose life was to personally deliver books to people's homes. Carl had an uncanny gift for recommending a perfect book to anyone. Who can resist this, "This book," said Carl, taking one from the pile next to the till, "has been waiting for you since the moment it was unpacked. Set in Provence, and every word scented with lavender." I hope you'll find it irresistible and run into your local bookstore! ~Aggie

— From This is Why I Read - Aggie’s Monthly Picks


The charming international bestseller about an unlikely friendship between an elderly door-to-door bookseller and a nine-year-old girl that changes his life.

Small-town German bookseller Carl Kollhoff delivers his books to special customers in the evening hours after closing time, walking through the picturesque alleys of the city. These people are almost like friends to him, and he is their most important connection to the world.

When Kollhoff unexpectedly loses his job, it takes the power of books and a nine-year-old girl to make them all find the courage to rebuild their bonds with each other.

A bestselling phenomenon internationally, Carsten Henn's The Door-to-Door Bookstore is a feel-good novel about books and friendship.
