"France is not poetic; she even feels, in fact, a congenital horror of poetry. Among the writers who use verse, those whom she will always prefer are the most prosaic." Charles Baudelaire


Les bouquinistes des quais de Seine
You will find on the Quai de Seine lots of people selling old books. It's one of my favourite things to do in Paris. Love buying old books, have a chat, and come back home with the smell of the bok.
Quai des Grands Augustins - 6ème arrondissement
An English bookshop with style. We couldn't expect less on Rue de Rivoli.
224, rue de Rivoli - 1er arrondissement
This bookshop is certainly one of the oldest bookshops established in Paris. Indeed, this establisment has been founded in 1826 in the Galerie Vivienne.
45-47, Galerie Vivienne - 2ème arrondissement
La Belle Hortense
It's a café, it's a wine bar, and it's also a bookshop where you can read, share, and meet philosophers, teachers and poets.
31, rue Vieille du Temple - 4ème arrondissement
Joseph Gibert
Certainly the most complete bookshop where you can find all books you want. When you are a student, it is also the perfect place to sell your books and buy your new book for "La rentrée" (back to school).
26, boulevard Saint-Michel - 6ème arrondissement
La Musardine
Let's be a bit cheeky. Paris, city of love is also an erotic city and this address is the perfect example, a bookshop where you can find cheeky readings with frivolity. Oh come on, don't say to me you are not curious about it!
122, rue du Chemin Vert - 11ème arrondissement
