Favorite: You've Got Mail

I'm sick. As in, yesterday I couldn't even get out of bed. And whenever I'm sick, I watch "You've Got Mail". The combination of fall, Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks, super old-AOL and bookstores never fails. And is there really any place more magical than a children's bookstore? No.

The movie is actually a remake of "The Shop Around the Corner" (1940), which is also golden and features Jimmy Stewart.

Click through the jump to see the list of books read and mentioned in "You've Got Mail", and to view both trailers.

You forgot to mention Pride and Prejudice. That was a pivatal scene. And you also forgot Skating Shoes: it brought Kathleen Kelly to tears
