What's Your Favorite Fictional Bookstore?

Flavorwire, where all the cool lists are, collected a top ten of fictional bookstores from the movies. There's some good ones in there, you'll see.

I love the one in Hugo. The Shop Around the Corner from You've Got Mail was adorable too; I could just imagine this being my favorite as a little girl. Cozy, magical, all that.

Tell me, is your favorite in there?


  1. Loved the store in Hugo, but adored the shopkeeper. I've always wanted to walk into a bookstore and have the person behind the counter know exactly what book I need. Actually started a story about that years ago. Wonder where I put it?

    Anyway, back on topic. I also love Marks & Co. from 84, Charing Cross Road. It's a lovely old movie, based on a lovely old book. [Can't believe I'm referring to something from 1970 as "old".]

  2. I'll have to check out that movie, sounds nice. And dig up that story! We want to read...

  3. The bookstore at 84 Charing Cross Road without a doubt. It was entirely about loving books. And old yes but the best.

  4. Now I must see it... Always love a good recommendation.
