84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
A slim but wonderful memoir in letters, legendary New York author Hanff wrote to (and ordered books from) Frank Doel and the other staff at Marks and Co in London from 1949 to 1968. This book collects some of those letters and it adds up to one of the loveliest tributes to friendship and reading of all time. Buy it for your bestie.
