English-speaking bookshops in Luxembourg

by Rhona Richards

For the book-lovers of Luxembourg, Rhona Richards has compiled a list of English book-stores in the Grand Duchy. Happy reading!

Editor’s note: Contrary to my belief, the word librairie is not a library at all, but a bookshop. A library is actually une bibliothèque. Confusing, so we hope we’ve saved you from a hefty fine or jail sentence 😉 !
