About this book:

‘I loved this book . . . I’m so desperate for you all to share in its wonder’
Elizabeth Day, author of How To Fail.

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, books kept her afloat. Eventually they lit the way to a new path, first as a bookseller and then as a writer.

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