29 books finished in 2013: The Imperfectionists

29 books finished in 2013

Why are you reading this book?
A friend recommended it years ago, and it had been on my paperbackswap wishlist this whole time.

What is the first line?
Lloyd shoves off the bedcovers and hurries to the front door in white underwear and black socks.

Describe the book in haiku form:
Hey, newspaper man,
you should have invested in
the internet, eh?

What will you do with it now?
keep for reference
keep and loan out to friends
keep to read again & again & again
x post toΒ paperbackswap.com x
throw it away

Anything else you’d like to say?
This book was written a few years ago about the decline of print news, told through the eyes of a fictional paper. Despite the awkward set-in-time-ness of that plot development, it was filled with sweet slices of life, and a few tragic love story.
