MessageI am a huge fan of Anthony Hopkins, that's why I met 84 Charing Cross Road. I love old books and its smell. I used to go to the second-hand book store to pick some and once found an original manuscript from 1960s.
If only the book store is still there.

MessageI love Helene Hanff's books and recently purchased a copy of Q's Legacy from an online, used bookstore. When I received the book, imagine my surprise to see that it was inscribed to the original owner and autographed by Helene! What a treasure!

MessageI was a customer of 84 Charing Cross Road Book Store. I still have the post card they sent me, announcing the closing of the store at the end of 1970. Also telling me that they were passing my new want list to another book store. A few years later, when I obtained the book by Helen Hanff', I kept the post card inside it. Mark & Co was a great store, like Wheldon & Wesley of Codicote, Hitchins, which also was closed for good a few years ago.

MessageCaros,

Comprei o filme 84 Charing Cross Road (Nunca te vi,sempre te amei) ontém num sebo (second hand video store) e fazia muitos anos que eu não me emocionava tanto com um filme.

Sou amante dos livros, também por questão financeira minha biblioteca foi criada com livros usados, e agradeço a cada uma das pessoas que me venderam esses livros, pois grande parte deles mudou minha vida, por isso entendo toda emoção de Helen.

MessageI have just discovered this site!

After seeing the film version of '84 Charing Cross Road', like many people I became captivated by the story and the way it shines a light on the human condition, illuminating it in a unique and poignant way. To know that others share this appreciation is a comfort.

I do feel however, that some credit should be given to Michael Foot who apparently saved the building from demolition. It might not exist at all if it were not for him!

Thank you for this site, I shall return many times.

Vanessa

MessageIt was so good to have found this site to the memory of Marks and Co. I did not have the lucky to be able to visit London but one day I will be able and I want to visit what now is the ground floor of 84 Charing Cross Road.
Greetings to all
Health & Peace

MessageMy neighbor gave me this book yesterday(dec.2015) and because she was so animated about this book I went right home and read it....a very different read from my usual topics. Excellent book and story. Now I will go out and get the movie which has my favorite actor, Anthony Hopkins in it. Neighbors are a great source of great reading!

MessageI'm a huge fan of Helene Hanff.Lately I'd been reading her THE DUCHESS OF BLOOMSBURY STREET record her wonderful trip in London in 1971.In the diary of July 15 she worte:

Ken Ellis of the London Reader's Digest came around this morning with his pretty assistant and a photographer, to take my picture. I put up the usual squawk but my heart wasn't in it and I trotted meekly back to 84 Charing Cross Road with them and had my picture taken sitting on the window sill of the bleak, empty upstairs room.

Do you have this picture metioned above? I really want a copy of it! Thank you.

BTW,since I'm in China I don't know if you can send e-mail to me successfully,God bless me!

MessageJust finished the movie. I am a book lover, also have the extreme passion for UK. This story make me add a new wish place to visit--the 84 Charing Cross Road. I hope I can have the chance to just look at the shop, imagine it was still the old Mark's bookshop and give it a kiss with all my love.
