My Favorite Bookstore


Photo of Shakespeare and Company.When I was in college, I spent a month living in Paris for a summer study abroad program. I had brought a few books with me, but I quickly ran out of reading material. I wandered into Shakespeare and Company and fell in love with the store. I spent hours wandering around the store while I was in Paris, browsing their crowded shelves and buying used books from the shelves outdoors. I even attended an author event, held on the top floor in a tiny nook with standing room only.

The store has a fascinating history, which is discussed in these books:

The bookstore makes an appearance in a novel as well as two movies!

Stephanie C loves all things Parisian. She highly recommends reading A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway and stopping in Shakespeare and Company if you are ever in Paris.
