Even the French Know the Importance of Pocho Studies

If you happen to be in Paris and -all of a sudden- feel the itch for some good, bibliographic reference for all things Pocho, make sure to drop by the Gibert Jeune Bookstore in the heart of St. Michel.

The place features a pochothèque, which this blogger believes is convinced, it’s an entire section dedicated to Pocho studies.

    “Pochothèque” means a bookshop, or section of bookshop, where paperback books (paperback books = “livre de poche” in French) are sold, as opposed to books in “grand format” (the French equivalent of “hardback books”). I’m afraid that whoever took this photograph did not perhaps know the meaning of the sign…

    In any case, I am now subscribed to your blog & look forward to reading your posts…

    Given that Gilbert is a first time in English and in Spanish, an easy typo to make. I only know because I shop there whenever I have an opportunity to go to Paris my my own Middle-of-Nowhere, France home.
