No. 1 bestselling author James Patterson shares true stories from booksellers and librarians in this love letter to the heroes of literacy, who open doors and expand worlds by introducing people to the life-changing magic of books.

To be a bookseller or librarian . . .

You have to play detective.

Be a treasure hunter. A matchmaker. An advocate. A visionary.

A person who creates a certain kind of magic by pulling a book from a shelf, handing it to someone and saying, 'You've got to read this. You're going to love it.'

Step inside The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians and enter a world where you can feed your curiosities, discover new voices, and find whatever you want or require. These palaces of knowledge are filled with magic and wonder, but they're also a business. The book business.

Meet the smart and talented people who live between the pages - and who can't wait to help you find your next great read.
