Synopsis

'I loved this book . . . I'm so desperate for you all to share in its wonder' - Elizabeth Day
'A warm, unpretentious manifesto for why books matter' - Sunday Express

Dear Reader is a moving, funny and joyous exploration of how books can change the course of your life, packed with recommendations from one reader to another.

For as long as she can remember, Cathy Rentzenbrink has lost and found herself in stories. Growing up, she was rarely seen without her nose in a book and read in secret long after lights out. When tragedy struck, it was books that kept her afloat. Eventually they lit the way to a new path, first as a bookseller and then as a writer. No matter what the future holds, reading will always help.

A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how books can change the course of your life, and packed with recommendations from one reader to another, Dear Reader is the ultimate love letter to reading and to finding the comfort and joy in stories.

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Last Act of Love.
