Located on the Left Bank opposite Notre Dame, this ramshackle bookshop sells second-hand and new books stacked on floor-to-ceiling shelves. It’s dimly lit and smells of dust but this only adds to its charm. Always teaming with expats and tourists, in summer actors read Shakespeare to audiences gathered in the street outside the shop.
