Bookstores/Assimil Store in Paris?

Postby Seneca » Tue Apr 25, 2017 3:07 pm

I just found out I will get to spend a week in Paris in the not too far future.

Any particularly nice/elegant/cool bookstores I should check out? And does anyone know if Assimil itself has a storefront? It'd be kind of cool to see all their current options laid out.

Assimil bookshop: 11 Rue des Pyramides, 75001 Paris (it's a little shop, nothing fancy)
100 meters farther in the street, there is also a Japanese bookshop (Junku)

Gibert Joseph
26 boulevard Saint Michel
(beautiful language section on one of the upper floors)

Gibert Jeune
LANGUES ET LIVRES EN V.O.
6 place Saint-Michel
(smaller bookshop, but specialised in languages)

They are close one to the other: Métro Saint Michel or Odéon.

Both have also second hand offers.

You were quite right that it was a little shop, but it was neat to see so many of their courses in one place since I have never seen them for sale in-store anywhere before.
