84, Charing Cross Road is a 1970 book by Helene Hanff, later made into a stage play, television play, and film, about the twenty-year correspondence between the author and Frank Doel, chief buyer of Marks & Co antiquarian booksellers, located at the eponymous address in London, England.
《查令街84号》是海莲·汉芙于1970撰写的小说，之后被改编为舞台剧、电视剧和电影；故事讲述了作家和坐落于英国伦敦 “查令街84号” 的马克斯与科恩书店的书商弗兰克·德尔之间长达20年的通信往来。
1987年的经典同名电影也非常值得一看。中译名《柔情一纸牵》将整个故事的精髓一语道尽。IMDB上无数观众都表示，这是“A truly good movie, nothing to change!”
Every member of the cast delivers the goods, the story is moving and truthful, the characters come to life and you're swept up in their lives.
I like the technique used in this film. The interaction between Helene and her British friends occurs only through letters, so rather than have the characters write a letter and then dub what is written, eventually, the characters just face the camera and say what they would have written, with the camera cutting back and forth for each others response at times.

英国特色书店—思卡森书店（Scarthin Books ）
For a start, it's located in Peak District, but that's not the best fact about Scarthins. No, that fact is that they stock the entire range of British Ordnance Survey Maps at 1 to 25,000 and 1 to 50,000.
If that wasn't enough, it has a variety of rooms stocking new and old books, and - brilliantly - an exhibition of 'curiosities' on the first floor. If that's not cool, we don't know what is.
