|Plot Summary of 84 Charing Cross Road|
|"You can read this charming book in less than two hours. The story consists entirely of letters from a New York writer requesting books, and a London Used Bookseller who places her orders. The correspondence, which lasts over 20 years grows from one of mutual interest in books, admiration, to friendship and love. This is a captivating record of bibliophilia, cultural difference, and imaginative sympathy. Very funny and sweet. One of my very favorite books!"
Kathleen, Resident Scholar
