Good Bookstores in Various Cities
« on: June 10, 2007, 04:28:39 PM »
In two weeks I'm leaving for 5 weeks in Europe and I was wondering if anyone familiar with any of the following cities knows of a good bookstore they'd recommend. I'll be in Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Manchester, Liverpool, Dublin, and London. (Anyone else looking for a bookstore post here too!)

Wow,nice. I'm sure that Eddieboy can help you with the bookshops in London, Ritka. ;) I smell excess baggage fees coming on ::)

 London- Hatchard's on Piccadilly is ok, but not as good as it once was-, Foyle's might even be better for new books.  A stroll up Charing Cross Road, and the side streets will bring into several wonderful shops for others. Some are specialised- art, militaria, mystery,theatre, etc.

In Paris I recommend the bookstore Galignani, rue de Rivoli. Lots of royal books in French and English.

Are you going to be outside London at all? I've ordered from these folks by mail; they seem to have quite an inventory:

Galignani is indeed a great bookshop ! I go there very often and am always sure to find the latest publications on royalty. Unfortunately books are very expensive there. They have no website but can be contacted via email or by phone. Helen provided all the info in her post.
