84, Charing Cross Road


I saw a review of this book on the blog A Girl Walks Into a Bookstore, and it sounded so cute that I had to order it from the library.  And it was really good!  This book is a collection of letters sent between a woman in the US to a group of people working at an antique bookstore in the UK.  The letters span over 20 years, beginning in the 1940’s, and us readers watch as a relationship develops between this woman and her friends in England, and all surrounding books!  This collection is sweet and quaint, and pefect for lovers of literature.  It will only take an afternoon to read, but it will make you wonder if the current age of emails and amazon.com will produce anything as nice as this collection of letters.

    Have you seen the movie with Anthony Hopkins (Frank Doel) and Anne Bancroft? I’ve watched it a dozen times. It is the only movie I have ever seen that was as good as or better than the book.

    I have not seen the movie, but I want to now! I think I’ll have to put it on hold from the library. Thanks for the recommendation!
