Les bouquinistes, with their dark green boxes of books and souvenirs, seem as much a part of Paris as the Seine.  I know nothing about the economics of the enterprise but have read that the waiting list to become a seller is from four to eight years (according to varying accounts).  And that’s with the requirement to open at least four days per week, no matter the weather.  They sound like a hardy bunch.
