From the CNN website:  “Over the past 50 years, Shakespeare & Company has provided both inspiration and accommodation for more than 30,000 writers. In exchange for a night’s rest on one of six beds crammed between the towering shelves, they must work in the book shop and read one book a day. “

This bookstore is just across Notre Dame in Paris.  Why did I not see it when I was there?  Oh, right, because it was already dark by the time I reached the Cathedral since I got lost for about 30 minutes, hehe.  I was hurrying to get inside before it closed, so I pretty much did not notice anything else around.
