Shakespeare and Company bookstore
This famous bookstore is named after the publishing house that first released James Joyce’s Ulysses. Hemingway and Fitzgerald were patrons. It’s a favorite hangout for expatriates from English-speaking countries. George Whitman, who died this week, ran the Paris bookstore for decades. His daughter will continue to operate the store. It's just across the river from Notre-Dame, so next time you're in Paris, stop in and soak up some history.
Info: 5th/Métro St-Michel. 37 rue de la Bûcherie. Tel. 01/188.8.131.52. Open daily noon to midnight.
