5 out of 5 stars

Only in Paris, with its world famous literary past, could you call a bookshop a ‘triptych’. But that’s exactly what Guillaume Dumora’s shop is – a hybrid, triple-purpose space with a “curiosity shop” for atypical and disturbing novels, a “gallery” where different paintings and photos are hung every 3 weeks, and the main “librairie”, where you’ll find everything from graphic novels to classic literature and modern poetry. Hang around long enough and you might even catch a live music concert, or meet an author on a book signing.  

In this era of Kindles and other smart reading devices, Le Monte-en-l’air’s arty atmosphere reconciles even the most fervent technophile with the pleasure of flicking through pages and chatting with passionate bookworms. You can even order coffee.
