Shelf Life

Romance, mystery, drama, and other page-turning adventures from a year in a bookstore

I started reading this once, lost interest, forgot about it, and tried again several months later. This is a note to self: even though the concept sounds interesting or intriguing, this book will grate on your eyes because of the voice that just likes to hear itself go on and on. Remember this and do not try again.

Note to everyone else: this may not apply to you. You might really like Suzanne Strempek Shea's voice. She wrote six other books that were published before Shelf Life, so somebody likes her voice. Suzanne worked in a bookstore as a way to get outside of herself after spending a year battling breast cancer, ending in remission. I don't know what happens after that.

Good luck.
