Joe tells Kathleen that he only visited her store because he was buying presents for Annabelle and Matt and it was the only place to find children's books in the neighborhood. However, before they visited the store he was asking the kids if they wanted to go see a movie and they only stopped because Annabelle saw the sign for the storybook lady, so he was clearly not looking for the store.

Cookie-cutter romance, but Meg Ryan radiates with charm
Pleasant, undemanding fluff reworks 1940's "The Shop Around the Corner" (remade initially in 1949 as the musical "In The Good Old Summertime") and reteams Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan for the second time in genial plot about rival bookstore owners. She operates a Mom & Pop bookshop, he's opening another outlet in his retail chain nearby; they lock horns over business, yet are unaware they are also each other's internet pen-pal. Slick and occasionally too-cute, but very entertaining picture with a holiday theme. Ryan is delightful, Hanks less so (he's rote, and looks tired to boot), but Greg Kinnear, Parker Posey, Jean Stapleton and Steve Zahn make up a terrific supporting cast. Engaging and lots of fun. *** from ****
