Can you start in Lourdes and walked to St. Jean Pied de Port?

Can I buy a guidebook in Saint Jean Pied de Port?

The question was:

I am going to do the Camino Frances starting in Mid-Feb. I was wondering if anyone at all started in Lourdes and walked to St. Jean? I was debating if I was going to train to Lourdes back to Bayonne and then down to St. Jean or just walk? I didn’t realize how close Lourdes was to St. Jean until recently. I’d like to go because my first religious experience was at La Grotte Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, which is a replica of the grotto at Lourdes. So it would be amazing to go.
