Fri Fav – 5 Books You Should Be Reading

Top 5 Book Recommendations for May 2016

84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

I so rarely read fiction these days because it feels like an indulgence. This book has letters between an American and a British used book store owner. It’s during the war and she sends them food and treats. She does things that only an American would do. He searches for books for her. It’s lovely, charming and wonderful! Recommended by Kathi Lipp
