Here on Modern Mrs Darcy I’m happy to play host to a community of avid readers. Around here, we love books and reading. And we also love to read about books and reading.
A good story is an experience, and many of us enjoy the extra layer of bibliophile enjoyment provided by a book about a book, or that takes place in a bookstore. I count myself among them, obviously. (I mean, I wrote a whole book about books and reading myself!)
I love reading the extra details about the writing life, or the writing process, or behind-the-scenes glimpses of the world of bookselling. There’s something for everyone here: literary mystery, love stories, heartwarming correspondence, treacherous librarians. The deep love of reading unites them all.
