Paris Off The Beaten Path: 1,965 reviews and 4,156 photos

<font color=9900cc>Second-hand English Bookshop, called <i>Tea and Tattered Pages</i>.

This wonderful bookshop is owned and operated by a Canadian expatriate. The staff are well versed in English and in French.

Don't get caught out paying 80-100 francs for a normal English book at one of the bookshops, like fnac or WH Smith. This second-hand bookshop is a fabulous find for an avid reader like me, and the books range in price from 20-35 francs. Don't forget to head down to the bottom of the shop for an enormous range of crime fiction and science fiction - I nearly missed it the first time! :)

There is a cute little tea-house connected to the shop out the back.

Address is <i>24 Rue Mayet</i> in the 13th Arondissment, just 10 minutes walk from Gare Montparnasse, or two minutes walk from Falgiuére.
