Book Club Pick - January

Welcome to Read On Sea, where the love for literature meets the joy of sipping fine wine! Our book club is more than just a gathering of avid readers; it’s a community that celebrates the magic of storytelling, the thrill of exploring new worlds through the pages of a book, and the pleasure of sharing those experiences over a glass of exquisite wine.

Days at the Morisaki Bookshop

Days at the Morisaki Bookshop is a short but powerful tale full of sweet sincerity. At it’s heart this is a story about the spectrum of love and the impact of human connections, as told through the relationship between a heart-broken niece (Takako) and her straight talking but goofy uncle (Satoru), set against the backdrop of a family run bookstore and the people who visit (whether that be fleetingly or religiously).

You’ll meet a miriad of complex characters with quirky traits and relatable flaws, sharing their own small but impactful stories, each brimming with lessons to impart on Takako.

Be transported to an enigmatic, antique neighbourhood in Tokyo, with passionate shop owners dedicated solely to selling second-hand books, here you will share in the importance of books and their power at connecting strangers, both in the present and reaching out across time.

This is a story to fix a healing heart, or will warm a contented one. Read cosied up by a window trickling with rain, or gift to a loved one who feels lost in the vastness of life and needs a little help grounding once more. You’ll feel comforted by it’s concise punchy writing; descriptive and emotive without unnecessary flourish. If you love stories that peek into the quiet every day, but no less important, lives of ordinary people, then you’ll truly cherish Days at Morisaki Bookshop.

For fans of – Winter in Sokcho, Assembly, Small Things Like These, and Before the Coffee Gets Cold.
