"Nina Sankovitch has crafted a dazzling memoir that reminds us of the most primal function of literature--to heal, to nurture, and to connect to our truest selves. --Thrity Umrigar, author of The Space Between Us

Catalyzed by the loss of her sister, a mother of four spends one year savoring a great book every day, from Thomas Pynchon to Nora Ephron and beyond. In the tradition of Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project and Joan Didion's A Year of Magical Thinking, Nina Sankovitch's soul-baring and literary-minded memoir is a chronicle of loss, hope, and redemption. Nina ultimately turns to read as therapy and through her journey illuminates the power of books to help us reclaim our lives.
