Book Haul | Shakespeare & Conpany 

I couldn’t go to France and not visit Shakespeare & Company. It’s been a dream of mine ever since I read it in Anna and the French Kiss. No amount of time could’ve been enough for me to explore in there and take in the overwhelming mass of books literally floor to ceiling. But I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking



The doormat had quite a lot to say..

Upstairs was filled with writer’s cubby holes and I’m talking Hemmingway kinda writers

The Haul!


Let’s take a moment to appreciate the tote bag which I’m tote-ally gonna rock every day



As a souvenir and also because I love Shakespeare I got Macbeth. I was trying to find a similar copy of Hamlet but no luck. The pages are gold bordered like so



We’d just been to Notre Dame and I wanted to learn more about it so


I also got this cool notebook to put all my blogging ideas in. It’s got some famous writers associated with the store.


Every book comes stamped upon request


Some bookmarks

These were the steps leading up to the writer’s cubby hole


I also got a post card because why not

Other books from France!


Paris has many street bookstores selling second hand books which was like my dream come true. I soon discovered most of the books were in French and settled upon buying the French version of Lolita. I plan on buying the English version and hope to build on my French vocab. Let’s hope it’s not too dirty


France also has amazing McDonald’s. Seriously guys, if you ever go to France, try their maccas. I, typically, bought a Happy Meal and received a French picture book. How cute is that! It’s Puss in Boots in French!

This was my experience at Shakespeare & Co. Hopefully it wasn’t my only one, I hope to return there one day and spend even more money. If you guys have any burning questions feel free to leave ’em in the comments!




  1. I just wrote about Lolita in my last post. That’s so funny. I read it when I was at university. I hope you enjoy it. It is probably one of the strangest books I have ever read.

    I’ve been to Shakespeare and Co. too. It is the most amazing shop! I made me friend stay in there for such a long time because I couldn’t bear to leave! I’m glad you enjoyed yourself. Thank you for the amazing photographs.
