    Summary

    “Hey man, let me live, I’m just trying to find a book,” Ian was wondering if this boy worked here, but then he noticed the nametag that read ‘Mickey’ on his plaid shirt, so he went in for the kill. “Uh, do you happen to know where I can find One For Sorrow by Christopher Barzak?” Ian was still having trouble finding his breath, and the room had grown increasingly hotter despite the cool autumn air.

     

    “Man, the only sorrow you'll find here is in the lives of the workers here.” Mickey scoffed and rolled his eyes.

     

    Ian noticed a book in Mickey’s hand and he wondered if Mickey was into reading.

     

    “What book is that?”

    “Its a new one we just received. Its called How to Not Be a Nosy Douchebag for Dummies,” Mickey snorted and Ian felt his heart skip a beat

    Summary

    He walks by her flower shop every day at 7:15 am. His head is tilted down as he listens to whatever is on his iPod that morning, mouthing the words and nodding his head to the music. He never sees her, but she sees him, because she just so happens to be watering the hydrangeas by the front window at that time. Every morning.

    It takes him about 15 steps to cross in front of her window, and then he’s at the bookstore he owns next door. It’s a quaint place – she’s never been there, but it looks quaint from the outside – selling half priced books of every genre. It seems to generate enough business, though, because she sees lots of customers come into the flower shop with “Jones Books” bags filled with used novels and stories.

    Summary

    Bestselling author John Watson fled the city for reasons known only to himself and settled in a borrowed bungalow in South Downs. Encroaching deadlines and debts force him to return to the world of writing and he reaches out to his favorite antiquarian book store for help with research. However, the bookstore has changed hands and is now the Holmes Antiquarian Bookstore, Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, proprietors. Sherlock isn't impressed with John's star status, nor is he impressed with life in general. But as he helps John with research questions, he finds himself curious enough to ask a few questions of his own.

    Told entirely in epistolary format through e-mails, texts, and other bits of communication.

    Summary

    Eren had never really thought about what he considered a perfect relationship; or perhaps he had, and just couldn’t remember. It wasn’t something he deemed important, who they were, what they liked, what they looked like. All that that changed over time, and so he didn’t see the point of fantasizing over someone that might never exist. In Eren’s opinion, as long as they were a decent human being, he could love them. That being said, he loved a very select group of people. His best friend, and boyfriend, held special places in his heart; just as his parents did. Sure his parents were not perfect, but they loved him more than he probably ever deserved.

    Also known as the story in which Eren works in a bookstore/coffee-shop, while living with his best friend and boyfriend, Armin; and they all fall in love after Levi begins working with them.

    Summary

    “Why’re you being such a dick, uh Nichols?”

    Oh you know, it’s not something she expects you to understand. It’s a lesbian thing, about Red not having named the coffee shop “The Bean Flicker” and her remarkable Piroshky “The Девственность Popper” so that girls like Lorna Morello, with pinup curly heads up in the clouds and exquisite chests full of dreams about prince charmings in naphthalene sweaters wouldn’t even dare to bring their CVs past the door. About falling for the straight girl, and falling so hard that she misses breaking her neck on rock bottom.

    “I just haven’t gotten any sleep, is all,” she says somewhat softened as she lights her cigarette, taking in a deep drag of smoke. “Y’know how this shit is, I’m like, the Fight Club guy, only I punch more imaginary shit up, and prefer using my fists for the actual, existent pussy that he didn’t get.” And an imaginary conscience, however fucked up She may be, is sure as hell better than an imaginary boyfriend, she wants to say, but she most clearly doesn’t.
