Bibliophiles of all sorts are sure to fall in love with Dodie and everyone she befriends along her bookish journey The Lending Library is a charming read full of heart, hope, and books. I choose this book for my First Reads kindle edition book for the month of June I am excited to pick this book up It is schedule to be release on July 1 2020 I will post a honest review as soon as I finish reading this book. Bibliophiles of all sorts are sure to fall in love with Dodie and everyone she befriends along her bookish journey The Lending Library is a charming read full of heart, hope, and books.
