What a lovely gem of a book this is! Helen Hanff's relationship with the employees of a British book shop both restores my faith in humanity and makes me sad for the loss of the art of letter writing. I borrowed this from the library thinking it would just be a light and quick read, but it actually made me tear up unexpectedly, and now I want to recommend it to everyone I know who loves books. I'm also hoping to find and watch the 1987 film based on the book.
