The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams tells the story of a widower and a teenage library worker who bond over a shared love of books. This heartwarming story about how a chance encounter with a list of library books helps forge an unlikely friendship between two very different people will charm you and make you think about the reading list you would like to share with future generations. The book highlights eight modern and traditional classic novels with each section about a different title.
