sleep in my tent, but clean my horse

Since 1951, more than 40,000 travelers, poets and writers have slept among the books at Shakespeare and Company. In exchange for their bed George, [92], asks them to write a short autobiography.

An enchanting documentary (“Portrait of a Bookstore as an Old Man” by Benjamin Sutherland and Gonzague Pichelin with Sycamore Films) about the Shakespeare & Co bookstore in Paris, run by 92 year old George Whitman. Found via Growabrain.
