Bookstore Romance

Love Speaks Volumes

Judith Rosen

What is the most romantic place to get engaged? A bookstore, of course. The perfect wedding venue? A bookstore! Book-loving couples from all over America agree, and Bookstore Romance celebrates not only a couple’s love for each other, but also their love of books and bookstores.

Bookselling journalist Judith Rosen interviewed twenty-four couples who tell their stories about how they planned and celebrated their engagements and weddings in independent bookstores. And of course these perfect occasions could not have been orchestrated without the help of willing booksellers who slipped rings into books, made special displays of handmade volumes, and hid behind bookshelves to snap photos.

These heart-warming stories, and inspirational photographs collected in this charming book with delightful decorations by the peerless Kate Feiffer will make a perfect gift for the book-lover in your life. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation.
