Legendary neighbourhood bookshops

Legendary neighbourhood bookshops

You can find some wonderful bookshops in the vicinity of the Hotel Monge. These icons of Parisian life are well worth a visit! At number 11, Rue Cardinal Lemoine you can discover L’Amour du Noir, where the particular fiction specialities are crime novels and science fiction. The other main area of interest is movies, and the shop offers a wide selection of books, magazines and fanzines devoted to the 7th art. Moving along, we come to the Leymarie bookshop at 42 Rue Saint Jacques. Established in the mid-19th century, the Leymarie specialises in books dealing with occult matters, including astrology, magic, clairvoyance, spiritualism, secret societies and occult philosophy. Advice and consultations are also offered. Opposite the Sorbonne and the Champollion cinema, at number 58, Rue des Ecoles, the Librairie Compagnie is probably the most cerebral bookshop in the neighbourhood! The selection of literary works and books dealing with subjects such as history, philosophy, social sciences, literary criticism and religion is second to none and particularly popular with students, teachers between classes, and intellectuals. Insomniacs gravitate towards L'Ecume des Pages at 174 Boulevard Saint Germain. This essential neighbourhood bookstore stocks some 40,000 titles and is open daily until midnight. JR.
