Comments: I have known this name which called "84, Charing Cross Road" for a long time, and I finally got Chinese version of the book in this noon. I read it under the sunshine of autumn and feel warm from this book.
I like this kind of bookstore, it give me the feeling of home,which the super bookshop never give to me.
Although the bookstore doesn't exist now, I hope I will visit there one day for the people who really enjoy in the books.
Thanks~~ ^__^

Comments: Hello,
I am part of a postal letterboxing ring in which we are all doing a hand carved rubber stamp and short story about a movie that most of us as women in the ring can relate to as a love story.
Although this story is a bit different as love stories go, I felt that this movie had to be recognized again to the next generation of women that might have never viewed this movie.
I am personally looking for the book
"84 Charing Cross Road" and if anyone knows of a copy that might be available please send me an email and the following information to acquire this book.
Your site is of great value and I enjoyed it very much.
Thank you for your time and also allowing a guest book.

Sincerely,

Well, this is what I get from snooping around second-hand bookshops! The reason 84 Charing Cross took my eye was because of my family history research into Marks, who were around the Soho area early 1800s (close to Charing Cross). Am I related to Ben Marks? I don't know at this stage, but I immediately bought the book and was fascinated, moved to tears and racked with laughter. Now I am hooked on 84, and am going out to find a copy for my niece. If and when I come to London I shall be heading for Charing Cross Road. Best wishes to the continued success of your wonderful web-site -- from Melbourne, Australia.

Comments: I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take a trip to Paris recently. By mistake, I found Shakespear & Co (another famous book store) and picked up 84 Charing Cross Road. I read a few pages and knew I held something special in my hands. That night, I read the book in my hotel room (too much walking - feet hurt) and as music floated in my windows, I was totally captivated by these people. This book fed my soul and lives on in your heart.

Comments: What a lovely site you have! Thank you for keeping the spirit alive.
Thought you might like to know that 84 Charing Cross lives again in Cleveland, Ohio at an antiquarian bookshop named 84 Charing Cross Bookstore.
The owners, Jeffrey and Sandra Inskeep-Fox, had their own correspondence with Helene Hanff before she passed away. The store was named in honor of both Marks & Co. and Helene's lovely book.
You may visit on-line at charingcross@speakeasy.net.
Enjoy!

Comments: Such a beautiful experience , moving and so eternally beautiful that it moved my soul..I gave a copy in (French edition) to a loved one whom I have known 26 years ago when we reunited in Europe just this month.. he also loved it, and so bittersweet since it is like our love story...We are both happily married and yet we are friends and one thing we always shared are good books.. I will again give a copy to a friend one day and I know they will feel the same emotions I felt the first time I read it 15 years ago...
Everytime I feel sad I read the book over and over again while listening to Pachebels Cannon in D... Thank you for letting me share.

Comments: 84 Charing X Rd was bought for me by a colleague - I have done the same for others. This makes you part of a "family" of admirers of the book and so it was nice to hear that 84 copies of 84 C X Rd have been left(on park benches and bus shelters) on both sides of the Atlantic to be read and passed on to others with a phone number to record the reader's thoughts. The results I believe will be aired on BBC4 on Tues 3rd May as 'book crossing'. Yours is a charming site and please take pride in having created it.

Comments: I recently saw this movie for the second time. I absolutely adore it and want it for my own, so I can watch it over and over.I would love to find someone in England to have as a pen pal. In 2003 I spent a week in London and cannot wait to go back. My entire home is filled with English antiques. This made me feel even more part of the story, relating to the surroundings. Thank you for this wonderful website.

Comments: Visited London about 3 years ago, fell in love with Charing Cross Station. On TV this evening, saw something like 84 Charing Cross Road. What a Godsend. Fabulous acting, splendid story, nostalgia galore. As if this wasn't enough, entered Helene Hanff into my browser and, among the 250 websites listed, I find yours. I am overwhelmed and, at 79, I find there is still much simple pleasure in this world that has gone mad on new mode, new speech, new MISconduct.
Thanks

Comments: I always love to see the movie 84 Charing Cross Road.I only wish I had the book to read that would really be great. 84 Charing Cross Road is a delightful old movie. Being a 28 year old its a shame that I never got a chance to write to Helene Hanff or Frank Doel. In seeing the movie I think they were wonderful people. If you know someone who could send me the book please let me know...

In today's modern age with the internet and email seemingly taking over, it was a delightfully refreshing change to see communication in the form of letters once again take pride of place. I thought the cast, their performances and the story all superb and I would like to say how nice it is to find a site that celebrates this delightfully sweet old fashioned film. Lovely!

Comments: The books and the "84" movie have been such a pleasure to me. Years ago Ms. Hanff answered my fan letter with one of her famous "cards"--displaying that wonderful criptic sense of humor. You can imagine what she did with this name of mine!

If all goes well, wife Jody and I will visit the Plaque, and the Kinelworth this fall.

Please-- anyone E-mail me with other Halene locations of interest.

Thanks for the website. It's great!

I look up all the names that are mentioned Ms. Hanffs books and just find more facinating stories of all the people Miss Hanff came in contact with, both in New York and London. There is a book shop in Cleveland, Ohio called "84 Charring Cross Road" and they also have a web sight. Blessings to all.

The reason I dropped in was because I've just read the absolutely fantastic "Between Silk And Cyanide" by Leo Marks...one of the most fascinating books I've read in years.
Some detail on Leo's life and his connection to the shop would only serve to enhance the site (congratulations on the work in progress though!)
Best wishes, I intend to read HH's book now!

She signed so many copies that she laughed and said the valuable ones would be the ones she hadn't signed. I was due to meet her in New York but by the time I managed to get there she had died. I stood in Central Park and said, almost the same words that she said when she finally stood in 84 Charing Cross Road. "Look, Helene, I made it!"

I was lucky enough to meet Helene Hanff in the foyer of BBC House in Portland Place, London, when she was interviewed for BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour in 1992. She signed my copy of 'Letter from New York' with the inscription "To Maureen - thank you for liking my books" !! Later, as her taxi pulled away from the BBC, she turned and waved goodbye.

Only a brief interlude, but a treasured memory for me.

Comments: Steve you have done well! Helen would have loved it. I will be in London in June and I plan to visit what is left of 84 Charing Cross Roads and to gaze upon the plaque that still stands outside the doors. You have done well. Can not wait to see the rest of it when you are done.
