Shakespeare & Company was recommended to me and the friends I was traveling with by a man we met in the Barcelona airport who is getting his masters in Paris. He said compared it to City Lights in San Francisco, which happens to be one of my favorite bookstores, and I have visited many bookstores, so of course we had to visit and I fell in love. This is no Barnes & Noble, the store is covered, floor to ceiling with books, some well known and some from small publishers like City Lights books. Around the store are comfortable places to sit and read and the store often has poetry readings. The staff is extremely friendly, as is everyone who happens to be browsing the store.
