Best Bookstores in Paris

The largest Paris bookstores are Fnac stores and Gibert Joseph, Paris reference academic bookstore, selling new and second-hand books in English. Close to the Louvre Museum, Smith and Galignani, the oldest English bookstore in France, have a large choice of English books.

Don't miss lovely Shakespeare and company American bookstore and tiny Abbey Bookshop Paris Canadian bookstore, both very close to Notre-Dame Cathedral.

CD stores in Paris

With the development of internet music platforms, there are now few CD stores in Paris. The last big Paris CD stores are the established Fnac megastores.

The nicest Fnac stores are Fnac Etoile and Fnac Champs Elysees on Champs Elysees Avenue.

OCD stores are selling used CD and vinyl records.

Sheet music and instrument stores

For classical sheet music, we recommend to go to La Flute de Pan near Saint Lazare train station.

Star's Music in Pigalle near Montmartre is the reference in Paris for popular music instruments.

Paul Beuscher near Opera Bastille is the largest sheet music and instrument store in Paris.
