Cover Image: The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians

This “celebration of the world of books” (Kirkus) is “a real page turner!” (Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan) that “feels like a love letter” (USA Today) to booksellers and librarians - as told to the greatest storyteller of our time, James Patterson.

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 “book joy” 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, find whatever you want or require. This place has the magic of rainbows and unicorns, but it’s 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 favorite book.
