I lstudied and worked in Lille fifty years ago and, despite massive cosmetic changes, especially the bright modern décor, new cavernous multi-level interior and the large and more practical Caisses/ payments area, this shop is still a wonderful repository of the publishing output of France...More

A 'proper' bookshop with 8 floors. Like almost all bookshops nowadays it has had to diversify into gifts, DVDs and music (including some good albums on vinyl promoted at less than the equivalent CD and much less than they'd cost in the UK) but still...More

Wonderful imposing building in a charming square. Fairly quiet when we visited but so we could see its true worth.

8 floors packed with books and book related items. Friendly staff. Wide variety of genres, from classics to manga. Large magazine section. Could use coffee shop and restrooms.

Sometimes a little too crowdy for a glimpse at all the new books, but at least you will find everything. Books are well exposed and sometimes a little "coup de comer" card gives a extra hint.

One those cavernous bookshops where you can find almost anything (in French, of course). Many departments, many typesof books and stationnery. A must if you need a book, or if you want to browse among recent books.

Spread over several staggered floors, this place is big! They sell books of course but plenty of other things as well. Magazines, cards, postcards, music, stationery, gifts... loads. You could easily spend a few hours here, browsing and buy!
