Paris. Bookstore. Love. (Part 2 of 2.)


  1. I never get tired of Shakespeare and Company. Thanks again and I am glad you enjoyed my posts about George Whitman and the bookstore. It will always hold fond memories for me and I look forward to returning each time I am in Paris.


      1. We’ll just hop into the car and drive south. Should be there in about 10 hours. Btw, we have done that before. (Drive to Paris, I mean.) Spent New Year’s Eve in Paris one year. 🙂 It was freezing cold but a we loved being there.

  2. I’m glad you posted this. I’ve never been to the bookstore, but one of my dear friends says she made it her “home” while living in Paris. Next time I visit, it will be my first stop!
