Published: Simon & Schuster - November 5th, 2019

As someone who actually enjoys reading obituaries of people I don't know (because you can learn a lot about a person after they die!), Mobituaries was written for me. I especially like the story of Audrey Hepburn, one of my favorite celebrities, and also the dedication Mo wrote about his own father.

As a long time bookseller, I related to Nina on so many levels: from living with way too many books in her home, to wanting one job-to find the right book for the right person, and believing that there is one out there for everyone. After losing her library job in England, Nina takes a risk and moves to Scotland to transform a van into a bookmobile. She learns to live in the real world instead of through her books. This is a feel good story to read with a warm beverage in front of a fire, while dreaming of being in the Scottish Highlands.
