Paris Second Hand Booksellers – Les Bouquinistes
To this day you’ll find the iconic green colored book stalls along the banks of the Seine. On the left bank from Quai de la Tournelle to Quai Voltaire and across the river on the right bank from Pont Marie to the Quai du Louvre.
The Paris Bouquinistes have inspired other cities like Beijing and Tokyo to have similar street vendors.
