Shakespeare and Co Bookshop was unknown to my taxi driver so finding it in a small street at the top of a flight of stairs was the beginning of an adventure. The charming exterior of the shop opened to an even more enchanting interior. Books reached up to the ceiling and could be reached by a ladder system which left you perched high up amongst stacks of books. The friendly proprietor happily helped me search for the titles I wanted and showed me around further rooms of children's books at the back. The collection is mainly paper back but is full of pleasant surprises.
