Yet another book where I feel stupid while reading. I fully expect to not know the meanings of a couple of words in a book but when it gets to be overwhelming, it's usually a good sign that the book and I will not be friends. I did love the description of the bookstore that the main character worked at and loved her co-workers. I found myself wishing that Esme and Mitchell would go away and leave me to talk books with the motley crew of employees at The Owl. Now that would have been a better book assuming I didn't have to pause every few sentences to define a word.
