    I’m also a huge Backman fan. I’ve read Ove and Britt-Marie, and I’ll pick up Bear Town for next month’s challenge. While it took me a minute or two to wrap my head around the Land of Almost Asleep (because it’s been quite a number of minutes since I’ve been an almost-eight-year-old), part of what I enjoy about Backman is that he forces me to slow down and pay attention to the journey. I thought this was one of his best.
