Teaser Tuesday - 84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Grab the book you are currently reading and randomly post a couple sentences

" Your ad in the Saturday Review of Literature says that you specialize in out of print books. The phrase 'antiquarian book sellers', scares me somewhat, as I equate 'antique' with expensive.

Even before this review I know that I am going to just adore this book. It was a real stroke of good luck that I extended my stay in Melbourne and whoever it was returned the book early!!!!!

My review will be up very, very soon! thanks to the several bloggers who brought it to my notice.

Hmm, the title of this book is so catchy. Happy reading!

Have you seen the movie with Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins? I love it! If the book is as good as the movie (or better), you're in for a treat!!! Enjoy!



Karen and Gerard said...

Glad you are enjoying the book. I never heard of this one before!

Stopping by from TT--here's ours if you get a chance to come by:

Karen and Gerard - I am having a problem going into some blogs. I couldn't get into yours either. Will come over tomorrow!

I really loved this book (and the movie, too). Excellent teaser!

Hi Mystica,

This another of those classic books, that I really should have read, but haven't.

I saw the film many years ago and really enjoyed it, so maybe you jogging my memory, will incentivise me to search the book out and add it to my 'To Be Read' mountain.

I hop that you enjoy it and I look forward to the review.

Here is my teaser from Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz (Page vii):

I used to be the kind of guy that would have no problem reading Playboy or Hustler on an airplane, but that me in "the before," and nearly everything has changed since that time in my life a little over a year ago.

This is not a coming of age story.

If that's what you're wanting then I suggest you put this down and read something else: something with a happy ending. Like Penthouse.

Or: the funny pages.

This is me giving you your official warning.

Because where this goes, you might not be ready for.
