This book was a find. The author, in her grief at her sister’s death, finds comfort in her decision to read a book a day for one year. She learns a lot about herself, life, and moving on from this project. I enjoyed this book immensely.

I have mixed feelings about this book . It reminded me of "Golden Grove " and "Does this church make me look fat ?"

After her sister dies of cancer, Nina Sankovitch turns to the books they both loved for comfort and guidance about how to truly move on with her life in this wise, warm memoir. Tolstoy and the Purple Chair is the history of their loving family, and an exploration of the ways reading can provide illumination, pleasure and comfort all at once.
