In response to This week in the Library!!, written by Kate on July 12, 1998 at 11:32:14
Someone brought up 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff on the Virtual View board, which caused me to drag out my copy for another read, and these popped out:
May 11, 1952
"You'll be fascinated to learn (from me that hates novels) that I finally got round to Jane Austen and went out of my mind over Pride & Prejudice which I can't bring myself to take back to the library till you find me a copy of my own."
And May 3, 1953
"First, enclosed find $3, P-and-P arrived looking exactly as Jane ought to look, soft leather, slim and impeccable."
Those must be some library fines!
