Shakespeare & Company is the cutest bookshop you will ever come across. Right opposite the Notre Dame, on the river Seine, you will find this small, higgledy piggledy book shop, first opened in 1919. It’s friendly and welcoming. I love the fact that the staff there put their own reviews on their favourite books. Sadly it has become a victim of its own success – it was so overcrowded when we went that I struggled to walk around. This may have been because it was a Saturday afternoon but I think also simply because it is so famous and everyone wants to have a look. They also do a few cool literary events in the shop every month.
