On reading: 5

The central heating in the shop is switched on so the few book-browsers who find their way to 7 rue de la Poelerie are assured of a warm welcome with no pressure to buy.  This beautiful browser was captured reading in The Glass Key by Theodore Roussel in 1886/1887 and the original painting can been seen in Tate Britain, London.
