    Livros - O Nosso Agora E Sempre

    "As memórias são como os lobos. Não as podes trancar num quarto e esperar que te ignorem."

    Mas...há os livros:

    Os livros protegem-nos ...

    Da tristeza.

    Da ignorância.

    Da falsidade.

    Plantam risos e lágrimas emprestadas.

    Elevam a auto-estima.

    Revestem-nos de amor, força e sabedoria.

    Descobrimos quem somos.

    Quem queremos ser.

    Aprendemos.

    Mudamos.

    Evoluímos.

    Amamos, odiamos, sofremos, rejubilamos.

    São vida por dentro.

    São abrigos, magos, mestres e companheiros!...

    A escolha é nossa:

    "A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therpay. Putting the right novels to the appropriate ailments:that's how I sell books"

    Fifty year old John Perdu considers himself a dispenser of literary medicine for ailments of the human soul rather than a mere bookseller. From his barge, the Literary Apothecary, moored on the Seine in Paris he dispenses books to cure people of their ailments, whether it be sadness, disappointment, anxiety or a lost love.

    Γλυκήτατο βιβλίο που περιγράφει την εξέλιξη των σχέσεων και το πώς αυτές διαχειρίζονται με την παρέα καλών φίλων και καλών βιβλίων!

    3,5 Stars

    Once again, a book that took me long enough to finish. Why am I such a slow reader? T_T

    Can I blame it on my activities again? Too many distractions? Because it's true.

    I chose this book right away because I think it's something like Chocolat (knew it from the movie, not the book), and it's a book about books! Amazing, right?! I knew there would be so many books told here. And I was right.

    But! I didn't really like how it was told, the plot, I mean. It's a bit confusing to me. It seemed

    There is an independent bookstore in Philadelphia called Joseph Fox. It is smallish – one floor, a big first room, a passage, a back room, and a smaller backer room where the children’s books are kept. Every conceivable space is packed with books. Does it have the selection of the big chain store or of Amazon? No. And it doesn’t offer discounts either, though it does give away bookmarks.

    But here’s the thing. You can walk into that bookstore and find four books tha

    This story of a Parisian bookseller who sets out on his bookstore on a barge to find the lover who abandoned him 20 years ago started out on a promising note but very quickly devolved. So many times I was rolling my eyes and groaning . . . and not in a good way. :) I felt the author was trying way too hard to be poignant and profound - maybe wanting to be the next Elizabeth Gilbert?

    So why did I read to the end of this almost 400 page book and rate it 3 stars instead of 1 or 2? There were several

    Bittersweet Gallic Romance



    This is a very French book. Kind of mournful, but also hopeful. Very, very emotional.

    This is ironic, as the author, Nina George, is actually German, although she now lives in France (which doesn't surprise me, as her soul is French).

    And yes, it's yet another homage to the vanishing independent bookseller, but it's much more than that. It's a reflection on love and death and other deep subjects. It's also a love letter to France.
