Mis à jour : 28 août 2019
It is with great pleasure that I present to you today magnificent international bookshops that have bewitched me. One step, then two, I imagine going into each of them. Breathe that particular smell they have when we go through their doors. It is above all the atmosphere that overwhelms me, envelops me, all these authors who speak to me and make me want to buy each of their works, to possess them jealously, to imbibe me of what they contain until more thirsty that's what I wish you after reading each article.
Brest - "Dialogues"
Brest, the sea, the boats, the breath of the wind and his bookshop "Dialogues" where I loved to wander the shelves discovering small wonders here and there for my greatest pleasure.
This large generalist bookstore with spaces dedicated to reading, coffee corner and signing meetings, I highly recommend it. Feel free to enter and let yourself be carried away by these thousands of works as I have been.
Parvis Marie-Paul Kermarec, Rue de Siam, 29200 Brest
Tokyo - "Kinokuniya"
If you go to Japan, do not miss this huge bookshop that is Kinokuniya. The main store has eight floors! Oh yes, nothing more. Small advice, do not go with your shoes with heels if like me love you rummage again and again along the shelves in search of the book essential to your balance ....
A wide variety of books come together, comics, magazines .... whether in Japanese or foreign languages you will undoubtedly find your happiness in their different branches.

Maastrich - "Selexyz Dominicanen"
The Selexyz Dominicanen is the bookstore you should not miss during your trip to the Netherlands. Entering this Gothic church dating from the thirteenth century and be surprised by the beauty and solemnity of the place is an effect guaranteed to no doubt.

Porto - "livraria Lello"
Two floors, a red monumental staircase,
welcome to this century-old bookstore with magnificent stained glass windows, a real gem of 120,000 titles. A beautiful setting for works that are worth it. This is the highlight of your trip to Porto that you must not miss.

London - "Word on the water"
With a magic wand, here I am on the platform. She is there, just in front of me, a few steps dancing slowly to the rhythm of the water inviting you to enter, one step, then two ... there you are ... Protecting them with its wooden arms, the barge hides a treasure to know, all its boarders stand at attention, ready to captivate you for a journey that will take them far away from here to your library. This is an address you should not miss when you go to London.
Word on the water: Regent's Canal Towpath, London Kings Cross, London N1C 4BZ, United Kingdom
San Francisco - "Dog eared books"
Nestled in this huge city that is San Francisco is a real treasure. My favorite! Easy to spot in its emerald color, I imagine myself entering, strolling, marveling at all these works. Whether new or old my fingers touch some of them triggering a winning smile. I know I will find little wonders in this bookstore that I highly recommend if you go through there.
