Bed in a bookstore

From Wikipedia:

Shakespeare and Company, is an independent bookstore located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris's Left Bank. Shakespeare and Company serves as a bookstore and also a lending library, specializing in English-language literature. The upstairs also serves as a makeshift dormitory for travelers, known as "tumbleweeds," who earn their keep by working in the shop for a couple of hours each day.

I'd love to live in a bookstore. I'd settle for being a cat in a bookstore.

That is the first thing I've seen that makes me want to go to Paris.

Pretty cool.

This would have to be one of the first places I'd check out if I went to Paris.

Hello Holly, nice to hear from you.

I have trolled many a book shop; nice ones and stinky hovels alike. This one has edged its way up on the "must go" list.
