There are other book shops catering to anglophones in Paris that are more famous, to be sure. But this one, tucked up behind Odéon on the well-named rue Monsieur le Prince, is a great place to seek out when you're looking for something to enrich your mind. There are so many storied titles here that pertain just to Paris, and while visiting it's a great occasion to read through some of them. Or, perhaps non-fiction is more to your liking. In that case these shelves are stocked floor-to-ceiling with a good selection of those in myriad subject matters, too. Once you've made your selection, be sure to mosey on over to one of the wonderful cafés nearby, order yourself something nice to sip and spend some quality "me" time with your newly purchsed book.
17 rue Monsieur le Prince
- Christmas Shopping: "Paris is a city where you often find people reading – reading on the métro, the bus, at a café, on a park bench. So if it's all about doing as the Parisians do, then pick up a previously loved paperback at this shop and, well, start reading."
- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: This little book shop is tucked up behind Odéon. It's a fabulous space full of paperbacks and great literary and non-fiction titles, all in English.
