Do you know Helene Hanff ? She is one of my favorite writers...

She was an American, who in her eager search for books more or less accidentally came into contact with a small bookshop in 84 Charing Cross Road in London.

In her book with the same name she describes in a very lively and entertaining way about the correspondence between herself and the owner of the bookstore - and later some of the employees. For two decades they exchanged letters and packages, and despite the distance close friendships grew up.

The story is based on real events and has been made into a very charming movie with Ann Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins in the leading roles. It is available on DVD. It is so worth seeing... estatic

Love it
