Shakespeare and Company is an independent English language bookshop in central Paris. It’s across the river from the Notre Dame Cathedral on the Left Bank. This bookstore opened in 1919 by an American Sylvia Beach. It has become a tourist attraction in it’s own right. The inside is compact but much bigger than I expected. Photography isn’t allowed inside without permission. There are many people reading and writing like the lady picture here. She is on her phone and I didn’t use flash or make any noise to capture this interior scene.
