English Language Bookshops in Paris - 6

Gibert Jeune at 10, Place St Michel ( in the 5th) is the place to go if you want the classics, are studying English literature or want a dictionary and don't want contemporary poetry or anything too interesting. In other words the first floor, which is devoted to English Language books, is no better than a UK branch of WH Smiths and probably a lot worse. That said I did pick up a second hand copy (they have some used books, probably acquired from students) of the collected Elizabeth Bishop for 6 Euros, which I call a result.
