marleed I‘ve never been to Paris but I did convince my son and DIL to visit this shop when they visited in September. They loved it. And they brought me back the Sylvia Beach book! And stamped with proof of where purchased! 2mo

Day off reading spot #4. Different library, different chair - still just as comfortable! I've finished my first book of the day (The Alcatraz Escape by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman), and now I'm moving on to the tagged book.

twohectobooks That looks like an excellent reading chair! 2mo

Since I don‘t know when or if I‘ll get the chance to visit Shakespeare and Company this book is the next best thing! There is a section at the beginning highlighting Sylvia Beach, but the book centers on the new shop of the same name owned by George Whitman, his early travels (fascinating) the start of his bookstore in the 1950s and his vision of being a frère lampier. This is the history of the poets & writers who frequented the shop. Love this!

I made it to Shakespeare and Company. It was a solo adventure b/c poor Mr. B is not feeling well. And also got to see Notre Dame from multiple angles as my directions kept telling me to walk on streets that were ultimately closed off. It is still beautiful, despite what has transpired. And the bookstore was tres bien as well. Only bought two books and three totes. (Gifts for friends!) 🇫🇷📚🇫🇷📚

Hollie Oooh I‘m so jealous! 9mo

Oh, my goodness Helen! It got too late to post this last night. My heart is so full! ☺️ Thank you so much for sharing this piece of your honeymoon with me! 💕🧳✈️ The wooden bookmark from South Africa is just beautiful & the Parisian postcard & bookmark make me feel like I am right there! I am blessed! And I‘ve been inspired to keep all my #litsylove in my vintage train case. So just like reading, I‘m traveling the world with lovely friends! 😍

I really enjoyed this 😁 It captures the essence of Shakespeare & Co. It‘s full of stories and anecdotes about the people that lived in the bookshop with him and filtered with little bits of info about the owner and the history of the shop. Hopefully get to visit in June 🤞 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #booked2019 #remindsyouofyourhappyplace

I‘m off work this week so enjoying a bit reading on a morning ☀️

I think this is called Time Was Soft There in the US. Started it a couple days ago and I‘m really liking it. Bookshops are my happy place and this one in Paris is special 💗#remindsyouofyourhappyplace #booked2019

Leftcoastzen Love anything about Shakespeare and Company, forgot to put this one on TBR. 11mo
LeahBergen I have this waiting on my shelf (under the other title). 👍🏻 11mo
TrishB I brought under the other title too and read before I visited the shop 👍🏻 11mo
