Today in Paris en route to WH Smith's large shop on the rue de Rivoli, a street to be largely avoided in my opinion, I stumbled upon Galignani Bookseller. What a truly wonderful place. How is it that on my previous visits I have missed it?
Two hours later I emerged with six books under my arm! Having promised myself I wouldn't buy any. Oh well off to La Poste I go..............
Have a look at the pics below, it will give you some idea of my temptation; NZ readers will understand when I say this store is like a giant version of Unity Books.

Check them out at their website -

And when you are in Paris be sure to visit them at
224 Rue De Rivoli, Paris, 1st.

You're having way too much fun in bookshops Graham - see what you mean about the English/French version of Unity.
