Shakespeare & Co., 37 rue de la Bucherie, Paris

Last weekend my best friend came to visit me and she took me to the sweetest English bookshop near Saint Michael in the 5th arrondissement. Despite the 15 minute wait to get in, it really was a lovely surprise inside. Beautiful classic literature books with rare and unusual cover pages, sweet momentos, a room for reading groups to take place, a tiny office covered in notes and letters and a stack of pretty second hand books. Even without buying anything, it was still a joy to look around.
