A joyous memoir of a life immersed in the pleasures and consolations of books by the author of The Last Act of Love and host of The Bookseller Podcast - Cathy Rentzenbrink. For as long as she can remember, Rentzenbrink has lost and found herself in stories. Growing up she was rarely seen without a book and read in secret long after lights out. Books kept her afloat in times of tragedy and eventually paved the way to a new future, first as a bookseller and then as a writer.
Dear Reader is a moving, funny and joyous exploration of how books can change the course of your life, and is chock-full of Rentzenbrink's splendid reading recommendations, including Children's Books I Love to Reread and books about Bad Love and Helpful Non-Fiction, from one reader to another.
