I just finished Nina Sankovitch's Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Readings. After the author's sister dies at forty-six, Sankovitch turns to reading a book a day for a year to mend her broken heart and reconnect with the memory of her sister. She documents all the books read on Read All Day blog and discovers through the experience, a community of book lovers to share the power and love of reading. If you are looking for book suggestions, she lists her favorites on the website.
I'm an expert amateur or maybe an amateur expert.
