Book Nerds: Bal des Ardents, Lyon

I mean, come on, this is the entrance to the store—an archway of books!

So I’m writing this a few days early because when this gets posted, I’ll be running around New York with my family (hopefully adding a bookstore or two to my nerd list!). But for now, back to the matter at hand.

Rounding out my book tour of France (even though that maxes out at two stores), I visited this little bookshop on one of the tiny side streets in Lyon, France.

While shopping is a problem if you don’t speak or read French (unlike Shakespeare and Co. from last week, this is an actual French bookshop), this shop is well worth the quick stop in. Why? Because just looking around the store set up will make any book nerd feel the coziness of home.

While I can’t speak to the content—though it’s as varied in sections as any other—what I can mention is the sheer volume of books inside the small space!

Every surface is covered in books including some pretty creative ones—there was a great bright yellow chair tucked in between two tables, all of which were piled with books.

Again, this post is small—just like it’s topic—but if you are in the area, go check it out!

Until next time (when I’m safely back in London Town),

This is Leave on the Wind, helping you soar.
