I just read 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff .
What an extraordinary book. It first reminded me at The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, as it is written in letters too, although the way how the "others" get conected to the story and write letters to each others too, is different. But it is is different, more personel in one way although it has no deeper story as The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society had.
