Shakespeare and Co in Paris

We both love books.

This isn't a photo of our house (in fact, it's a photo of Shakespeare and Co bookshop in Paris), but it could be. We have around 30,000 books of all types, collected over many years. Lindsey has a special interest in juvenile literature from the 1920s and 1930s and has complete first edition sets of many of them.

As we such a large collection we have books in many rooms. We have leather-bound antiquarian books in the living room. We have two walls of cookery books in the kitchen. And most of the other rooms have some shelves on the wall too. Fortunately, the living room has a 17-feet ceiling, which helps.
