#47 - Q's Legacy

by Helene Hanff

This was a lovely little book which I read as part of a bookring (thank you, M)! Also thanks to NCoT, who included a teabag in the package – and I did sit down and drink that tea while reading this book, and I even treated myself to milk and sugar (which I’ve tried to cut out of my tea-drinking lately; I thought this was a special occasion, though). :)

Funnily enough, I didn’t know this was non-fiction when I started reading – I’m notoriously bad about finding out anything about books before I start to read. I assumed this was a novel until she started talking about writing “84 Charing Cross Road,” which I knew was a real thing! :D

I can easily see why people would write this woman letters and be such dedicated fans – reading this book was like corresponding with an old friend. She’s got a lovely “voice,” and the story of her life/career was interesting, funny, and touching. I’m glad to have read this book! 9/10 (even though the AC star system only has 5 stars max).

I’ve got the address for the next person on the list, so this book will be in the mail to her next week.
