The Shakespeare and Company bookshop - a “labyrinth of books” - on Rue de la Bûcherie in Paris. Opened by George Whitman (no relation to Walt) in 1951 as Le Mistral, the name was changed in April of 1964 to honor William Shakespeare’s 400th birthday. It was once the only free English lending library in Paris, and Whitman allowed traveling writers to stay in it as needed.  

This place is amazing.
