An American (bookstore) in Paris

Well, that's good news, anyway. It seems that the emblematic American bookshop Brentano's is going to reopen shortly. The store, based in fancy-ish Avenue de l'Opéra in Paris, was forced to close back in June last year due to a phenomenal increase of its rent. A rescue has been staged, a rethink of the whole operation too, it seems, so the shop is ready to welcome English speakers (and Japanese tourists) once more. Ouf! as they say in Paris.

  1. En direct de Paris, ce mercredi 17 mars, il est 10h05, avenue de l'Opéra, j'y étais et Brentano's est ouvert! Photos (preuves) suivent!
    Un fidèle lecteur anonyme (mais bien connu).

  2. Le lecteur anonyme a le droit de signer, sans blagues! Mais bien sur, l'incognito c'est tellement plus chic!... ;o) Merci pour l'info!

  3. C'est-à-dire que l'anonyme a du mal avec les profils. Il faudra lui donner des cours!
