#BookADayUK; A Reader Event For October. Day 9

The theme for today is, 'Favourite book about a bookshop'. No contest for me. Helene Hanff's 84 Charring Cross Road is the obvious answer. A brilliant evocation of the bookshop and its characters, spanning the Pond and bringing life to its era. A lovely, feel-good book, which I enjoyed immensely. If you haven't read it, go get a copy, borrow one, but read it. Gentle humour, emotional engagement, and a social message well expressed.
