Excellent writing and beautiful story. Erdrich reads the audiobook herself, which I enjoyed. I failed to realize before reading it that covid is part of the plot and I am not (and may never be) ready to read anything about the covid pandemic.

This one felt very different than the other two I‘ve read by her (The Round House, The Night Watchman) although still unmistakably Erdrich. Somehow this one was slower-paced and more diffuse. I still enjoyed it although it wasn‘t quite what I expected - and I still wouldn‘t really know how to describe it if someone asked for a recommendation. #authoramonth

I love how a haunted bookshop, a modern Native American experience, and the pandemic come together so well in this story. Tookie forms strong friendships as she makes her way through a difficult few years.

I think this my favorite book so far by Louise Erdrich. I love how timely it is, I love how she put herself in the book. I love that it is in a bookstore.

How to describe this book? It‘s a book about sentences (not just made of words), about dictionaries, about loads of books (will be going down a rabbit hole with those LISTS!). About ghosts, about confronting the past, about deciding to LIVE. It covers the pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, indigenous respect and ritual, love, loss, everything. I LOVED IT. Thank you, @Sapphire 😊 Your list gave me the push to finally read this ♥️

I‘m only on page 100 and already all the other book mentions in this book are giving me TBR overload. The only problem with a book about books is it makes me want to read more books!

I liked this book but didn‘t love it. I liked the characters, the different stories but it was difficult for me to see the story integrated, as a whole. I saw some parts like forced maybe because the author wanted to mention something about the pandemic situation? I don‘t know, maybe it was me. I was expecting more. But I really enjoyed those passages related with American Indian traditions, beliefs. I took my time to seek more information.

Gissy I liked this UK edition 3.75⭐️

MoonWitch94 I felt similarly. I‘m reading something else by this author to see if her other works are better. So many love her; I‘m hoping the next one is better. 1w
BarbaraBB I‘m doing ATY too. Are you reading the prompts from 1 to 52? I did that once but became lazy the next year. Now I read them randomly 7d
Gissy @BarbaraBB Yes, I read them randomly but I try to revise the prompts monthly while I choose my tbr. 5d
