Hi collie21,

It's the Cat's Whiskers at 30 rue Lamartine. Rue Lamartine runs parallel to Jean Medicine on the other side of Nice Etoile. The bookshop is about two blocks up (walking with your back to the coast) on a right side corner. Full details of open hours here: http://riviera.angloinfo.com/af/42/.

Yep definitley, somewhere in behind the Nice Etoile is one but I can't find it. was only there once and need the address if anyone has it. Run by an English girl I think. I also have a few books lying around if you wanna swap. What do you like to read???hey does that wall have a crack in it?

Dear person,

After having closed my bookshop in Paris, I have boxes and boxes of books, old and new, all subjects, hard and paper backs. If you have the time to look through them, your price is my price. TEL 04 93 96 26 48.

There is an english language bookstore that has new and used books in Nice called The Cat's Whiskers. It's on 26 rue Lamartine.

There's an English library in Nice, FNAC sells some English books, you can order through www.amazon.fr or you can take the train to Antibes and visit Heidi's Bookshop (two floors of books!).

Try the "Email Cafe" in the old Nice. In the street that goes off the rue de la prefecture; first street after Wayne's bar (to the left-hand side).

Email Cafe id on that steet on the right-hand side. They have some English books for sale.

Good luck.
