So, last Sunday afternoon, I turned on the TV half way through 'You've Got Mail', a film I've seen a couple of times before, (and always enjoyed), and despite it being an hour in, I sat and watched it, and boy, why have I never really noticed that bookshop before?
Anyway, whether it's because I'm a bookworm, or because I love fairy lights, or because Meg Ryan looked amazing, this film, and in particular the bookshop, has gripped me, so much so, the current novel I'm editing/revising, has benefited from the inspiration and now I can't stop writing!
So, the bookshop I'm writing about isn't in New York, but London, and it isn't called 'Shop Around The Corner' but is currently known as 'The Chalk Farm Bookshop', which doesn't sound very inspiring, but believe me, the name means a lot to the characters, and who knows, I might even change it.
'The Chalk Farm Bookshop' doesn't just sell children's books either, and there's a very good reason for that too.
But the novel does follow the story of two people, who you wouldn't necessarily think should fall in love, do fall in love.
Happy Thursday folks
