Update Nov 2020 - Just as charming on this re-read. I will bump up my rating to 4.5. I did not remember that Hanff did not like fiction initially but came around to liking some during the course of her correspondence such as Pride and Prejudice and The Wind in the Willows. Her viewpoint was that she didn't like stories that happened to people who did not exist, which is a funny opinion for a television script writer.

4 stars for this classic. It sounds so dull when you read this book's description which is a series of correspondence between a woman living in New York who writes to a bookseller in London over a period of over 20 years. But the letters are so engaging. They begin very formally at the beginning, but over the years a nice friendship develops between Helene and Frank, the bookseller. Others in the bookstore and Frank's wife write to Helene at times. Helene is generous with gifts to the bookstore employees during England's years of rationing after WWII. They all come to love Helene through the years even though they never meet in person. So this small book contains more than meets the eye.

It was just OK, people raved about it as a Panacea from Covid isolation and I see the point but it was too short. It does get me thinking about Helene Hanff though... ( )

Re-read 7/15/16

Utterly charming, funny and warm book about readers, their love of books and finding kindred souls. It made me laugh out loud and smile quite a bit. Hanff is a hoot and I felt like I got a small but honest glimpse at her relationship with the employees of the bookstore at 84, Charing Cross Road. 4/2/14 ( )

الكتاب عبارة عن مجموعة من الرسائل المتبادلة بين الكاتبة هيلين هانف الأمريكية ومكتبة تشرينج كروس المتخصصة في الكتب النادرة والمستعملة
والتي مقرها في لندن
كانت رسائل عمل لطلبيات بعض الكتب التي تهم الكاتبة
ثم أصبحت أكثر حميمية وجمالا مع التطرق لتفاصيل كثيرة
وقعت في خمسينيات القرن من أزمة الغذاء
الطاحنة في لندن
بالإضافة إلي بعض التفاصيل الشخصية الدافئة بين أعضاء المكتبة وهيلين
وبالرغم أنها كانت تتوق لزيارتهم لكن لم تواتيها الفرصة للسفر إلي لندن
وقد أحزنني بالفعل وفاة فرانك دويل والذي كان يراسلها هو وزوجته وأبناؤه طيلة العشرين عاما
هذا لم يكن بوح للغرباء بل كانت علاقة جميلة بين أناس متقاربين فكريا ومحبين لعالم الكتب
كما أنها كانت مليئة بالدفء برغم المسافات الشاسعة والمحيطات التي تفصلهم عن بعضهم
الرواية تحولت لفيلم من بطولة أنتوني هوبكنز وآن بانكروفت أتمني أن أراه في أقرب وقت فراغ لي فأن أحب هذا النوع من الأفلام ( )

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of what may be the most unlikely New York Times bestseller ever: Helene Hanff's 84 Charing Cross Road. ...84 Charing Cross Road is a perfect example of why you can't judge a book by its cover, its length, or the unorthodox nature of its content. Ultimately what makes the book work is what makes any book work, whether fiction or nonfiction: the relationships between the characters....84 Charing Cross Road is at its core a book about lovers of books, and is at the same time one of the funniest and most touching books you'll ever read

My friends are peculiar about books. They read all the best sellers, they get through them as fast as possible, I think they skip a lot. And they NEVER read anything a second time so they don't remember a word of it a year later. But they are profoundly shocked to see me drop a book in the wastebasket or give it away. The way they look at it, you buy a book, you read it, you put it on the shelf, you never open it again for the rest of your life but YOU DON'T THROW IT OUT! NOT IF IT HAS A HARD COVER ON IT! Why not? I personally can't think of anything less sacrosanct than a bad book or even a mediocre book. [54]
I do love secondhand books that open to the page some previous owner read oftenest. The day Hazlitt came he opened to "I hate to read new books," and I hollered "Comrade!" to whoever owned it before me. [7]
It [the Book Lover's Anthology] looks too new and pristine ever to have been read by anyone else, but it has been: it keeps falling open at the most delightful places as the ghost of its former owner points me to things I've never read before. [56]
Have you got De Tocqueville's Journey to America?  Somebody borrowed mine and never gave it back.  Why is it that people who wouldn't dream of stealing anything else think it's perfectly all right to steal books? [61]
A newspaper man I know, who was stationed in London during the war, says tourists go to England with preconceived notions, so they always find exactly what they go looking for.  I told him I'd go looking for the England of English literature, and he said:
"Then it's there." [13]
