second hand book seller

Aziraphale collected books. If he were totally honest with himself he would have to have admitted that his bookshop was simply somewhere to store them. He was not unusual in this. In order to maintain his cover as a typical second-hand book seller, he used every means short of actual physical violence to prevent customers from making a purchase. Unpleasant damp smells, glowering looks, erratic opening hours - he was incredibly good at it.

The model reads at the Bouquinistes, booksellers of used and antiquarian books who ply their trade along large sections of the banks of the Seine. Famous for its second-hand book stores and its old book sellers, the Quai Saint-Michel links Saint-Michel Bridge to the Petit Pont Bridge.
