Abstract:

|Meet Beatrix Babbage - 29-year-old dog-earer of books and accidental destroyer of weddings. After ruining her best friend's nuptials, Bea relocates to the other side of the country in search of a fresh start, including meeting new people, living life to the fullest and finally pulling off balayage. But after a few months, life is more stagnant than ever. Bea's job is dead-end. Her romantic life? Non-existent. And her only friends are her books, her barista and her cleaning lady.?Then Bea stumbles across a second-hand novel, inscribed with notes. Besotted with the poetic inscriptions, Bea is determined to find the author ... and finds herself entangled in one hell of a love quadrangle. Funny, poignant and insightful, While You Were Reading reveals that there's no such thing as perfection, the value of true friendship and, most importantly, the power of not living in fiction, but still reading it ... Often.
