84, Charing Cross Road

I remember years ago a guy I knew told me that people going to England find exactly what they go looking for.
― Helene Hanff, 84, “Charing Cross Road”

A gem of a book, with a lovely film adaption with Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins. It is a series of letters between Hanff, a New York writer, and lover of books, and a bookseller working in Charing Cross Road, London. There is a YouTube clip and more information here.
