For Day III of the Quotes challenge, for which I was nominated by catalan blogger and photographer Cosmo, from bCL Photography, I’ve chosen a witty quote from the greatest writer in the English language.
“Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.” William Shakespeare
The photos below are of the Parisian bookstore “Shakespeare and Company”, in the 5th arrondissement. I took them when I was in Paris this past May. “Shakespeare and Company” is not only a regular bookstore and second-hand books store specializing in English-language literature, but also a reading library. It has become a tourist attraction since it was featured in two popular movies: Richard Linklater’s “Before Sunset” and Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris.” It’s small and cramped, and a bit chaotic with tourists walking through it, but it’s worth a visit.
This is also going to count as the 170th post for my 365 project. And, again, I am refraining from nominating other bloggers and hope anyone who likes the challenge feels free join in the fun!
