Books to the ceiling, books to the sky, my pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!
Beautiful and wistful story that shifts between the present and the 1940s. Romantic and sad. The writing style had me picturing a grey, turbulent ocean, ferocious and frothy. But instead of feeling disturbed by it, I felt peaceful. The ending was satisfying, even if a certain part of the plot annoyed me.
