Overview

What better way to start a day than with inspiration from a literary classic? Now you can do just that. In this book, praised author and critic Hallie Ephron delivers a daily dose of literary knowledge.

A brilliant companion to the canon of great literature, it's perfect for anyone who wants a novel way to energize each day. Ephron's work is a secular twist on the traditional devotional and provides concise plot summaries, sketches of standout characters, quotations you should know, and more about hundreds of books by tried-and-true authors as well as new literary voices.

Whether it's coffee with Austen, a quick lunch with Faulkner, or an end-of-the-day jolt with Chabon, this book proves a good book is a great source of daily inspiration.

Editorial Reviews

There can be no doubt that Hallie Ephron grew up in a literary environment: Her parents were both screenwriters; Hallie and her sisters Nora, Delia, and Amy all became authors. All of which prepared this Ephron admirably for crafting 1001 Books for Every Mood and The Bibliophile's Devotional. This secular devotional provides much more than a full year of pithy literary quotations. Ephron also includes character sketches, plot summaries, and choices that extend far beyond habitually cited classics.
