Summary
Hector and Virgil are the kindly and slightly eccentric hosts at a rustic retreat on a beautiful island in British Columbia. The bed and breadfast is the perfect refuge for guests who find that the ratio of books available to time available to read them is terribly skewed. Brief biographical sketches of these bibliophiles alternate with stories from Hector and Virgil on their growing up, their neighbors, the vicissitudes of running a B&B, and, of course, lists of books for various occasions. A gently humorous read
