    Hey guys, I remembered this book I read a long while ago, and I'm having trouble finding it.
    I remembered some of the plot:
    About some kid living on the street who steals an ancient talking book (Either from Alexandria or Babylon).
    If any of you know what I'm talking about, please tell me.

    Sounds vaguely like the 1980's movie titled The Never Ending Story?

    Wasn't from Alexandria or Babylon, though. And Bastian didn't have to live on the street, his father's a dentist.

    The Pagemaster?

    Other details I remembered:
    There was a subplots involving a librarian guy who the boy stole from, some filthy rich woman, and a girl who accompanies the boy.

    OK, then it's not The Neverending Story.

    Where and when was it set? (If you check the technology in the book, it helps to narrow things down.)

    I remembered someone having a private helicopter... Not sure if that helps.
