Sorry for the delay in posting a book today… I am still having computer problems accessing my dashboard with my blogger site. Is anybody else having similar problems?
84 Charing Cross Road
84 Charing Cross Road is a delightful tale of friendship that evolves via correspondence over a 20 year period between freelance New York writer Helene Hanff and secondhand book dealer Frank Doel in London. Their friendship spanned from 1949-1969.
Of books, Helene writes,
“I shall sprinkle pale pencil marks through it pointing out the
best passages to some book lover yet unborn.”
I’m one of those people who *gasp*
underlines and writes in their books. Most books get this treatment though not all. In fact, one of my friends and I have been known to share a book and share the comments in the side margins. I know… rather dorky and strange : ) Perhaps that’s why I like the above quote so much.
When we share a book we’ve loved, don’t you think in essence we’re sharing a little part of ourselves, making ourselves vulnerable in the hopes that the other person will love those quotes and that book as much as we did?
What are your thoughts?? I would love to hear them and what book you would love to share with me!
“You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody.”
