It’s been quite a while since I last updated this blog. My reading keeps going on (sure!), though of a pace a bit slower in this hot weather of summer, and bookshop visits have been so frequent as always… Reviews on books read will come. This time I just like to share a brief updates on Shakespeare & Co, the “bookshop”, on its faces in spring and summer of which I managed to take some shots. Enjoy!
In spring, unexpectedly I found cherry blossoms just in front of the bookshop. Never had thought that those trees were of cherry blossoms. It’s rather rare in Paris to find this typical tree of spring lined together, so it was really a nice surprise for me! We were walking around Notre-dame and the bookshop area just across the street, after having spent some time picnicking by the Seine. Weather was lovely that spring afternoon, sunny with cool fresh breeze, and everybody was just out and smiling! 🙂
The bookshop in summer. The door is now always open to get in some air, and more and more people sitting outside, reading or just gathering.
Regular reading is managed outdoor during summer (other seasons will be indoor, in the library on the 1st floor). The reading takes place on mondays around 7 pm.
I know I will miss this place and its magical ambiance when I’ll leave this city..
