shakespeare & company

August 18, 2009

P1040464walking along the seine river, i found myself walking right past the famous bookstore, shakespeare & company, which carries english books (yay!), so i just had to go in.  started in 1951, this bookstore stamps every book that leaves their doors…

so next time you pick up a used book and see this stamp inside you will know where it came from.

the shelves are just crowded with books.  the bookstore also has various events and workshops which are updated on their website.

in other book-related news, i just heard about the program, choose what you read in new york.  instead of just reading the metro on the subway, this organization wants you to pick out a book and when you are done, pass it on to somebody else.  they have monthly drop off stations, and the best thing is that it’s all free!  they just ask that you return the book when you are done.  simple enough!

    Hi Alana,
    Sorry I must not have received the first message. Unfortunately, I realized that the indoor shot wasn’t appropriately credited, but it came from the actual website for shakespeare & co, so you would have to check with them. As for the first one, you are more than welcome to use it if you would like.
