1. I had misgivings about this novel having the subtitle "a romance" given the age difference between the characters. By the end, I was won over, but it's still far from a traditional romance. What elements of romance are present? What elements of romance are lacking?
2. As a librarian, I'm immensely curious: what were you reactions to the details of librarianship? Were you as fascinated as I was?
3. Let's talk about Peggy. While I adored her often irreverent and always honest look at herself and the world, she's not a traditionally likeable character. What did you think of Peggy?
4. What surprised you in this novel?
5. To whom would you recommend this title?
