#popsugarreadingchallenge prompt 9: book with a map

I loved both this book and the stories from history it tells. I just love the fact the bookwomen actually existed and trundled around poor rural areas delivering books and all of everything that comes with them. I cannot imagine the difference having reading material must’ve made to the patrons of these women.

The fact that the Blue people existed astounded me and I really liked that afterward which explained the facts a bit more.

For a moment near the end I did have a sense of dread that the wonderfulness of the book was about to be ruined by schmultz but it wasn’t. It was just so lovely.

Well worth reading – lovely book
