Happy Bastille Day! (Le Bookshop closed)

This French National Day commemorates the beginning of the French Revolution with the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. The oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Much more fun are the celebrations througout France with spectacular fireworks. In Montpellier you can go to the Bassin Jacques Coeur in the parc Charparc to enjoy a big show of fireworks and music starting around 10.30pm.

Le Bookshop is closed all day and will be open again on Wednesday as usual from 10am to 7pm.

Summer reading + the 'rentrée'

Even though there will be fewer activities planned on our cultural program during the summer, the store will be open as usual. We propose a good selection of books for your summer reading so don't hesitate to stock up before going on vacation.

If you're already on vacation come and enjoy a refreshing cold drink on our terrace and have a browse in our downstairs room where we keep all the books.

We're also there to help you prepare for the next school/academic year wether you're in primary school, 'collège', 'lycée' or in higher education. Send us a message on contact@lebookshop.com or come to the store at any given moment.

Livre du mois

Dogwood” Lindsay Parnell

Dans ce début fort de Linen Press, une histoire brute et puissante. Après avoir été libéré de prison Harper Healy, 19 ans, essaie de reconstruire une vie, mais les mêmes amitiés qui l'ont toujours aidé dans le passé l’entrainent maintenant dans un cycle noir de sex, des drogues et de la violence. 

In this strong debut from Linen Press we find a raw and powerful story. Released from prison, 19-year-old Harper Healy tries to rebuild her life, but the friendships that sustained her in the pas now drag her into a cycle of sex, drugs and abuse.
