You may have forsaken the printed word for your iPad screen; perhaps the books in your home now serve as doorstops. But spend even a short amount of time in Paris, and you’ll see that reading books in cafes is a Parisian stereotype for a reason. If all those gorgeous people with their noses buried in books has inspired you, then you should find what you’re looking for in one of these fantastic bookshops in Paris.

Shakespeare and Company

This legendary independent bookstore on the Left Bank is what you see in your mind when you dream about moving to Paris and working in a bookshop – ceiling-to-floor, books are crammed into every possible nook and cranny and even flow out onto its small terrace in low rolling shelves. If you can’t find a book in here, then just go back to reading Twitter.
