Paris In July - Week 2 Review


We are now half way through our Paris In July journey and I am starting to panic about how much I want to cram into the rest of the month and so little time in which to cram! Maybe I will just have to linger in Paris through August...

Some of the amazing posts we have had this week include;

- Amy continues re-living her journey through Paris

- Anni shares a beautiful art work

- Audrey reviews a French movie that I really want to see!

- Brenda went dancing

- Buried in Print has been reading aplenty

- Chat Noir shared some French memories

- Electra shared some information about Napoleon

- Frances was living the sweet life in Paris...

- Joan shared a beautiful quote

- JoAnn makes Zola sound very much like an author to try

- Marie shows us just how many great French books there are in the world

- Mel u shares more Zola impressions

- Mrs B made me salivate!

- Sabrina gave us a recommendation for French reading

- Sara reflected on a writer's darker experience of Paris

- Tamara became a fashionista!

- Tea reviewed a novel of a famous and wonderful French artist


I have been so amazed by the wonderful variety in the type of activities people are engaging in to celebrate Paris in July - keep it coming!

Now, for the weekly winner - it is (randomly drawn) Sabrina!! Congratulations Sabrina! When you get a chance could you please leave your email address in the comments section of this post so that I can send you your prize.

Happy Paris In July everyone - 2 more weeks to go!

Thanks for the great round up post. Going now to check the things I missed. And congrats to Sabrina whose very name reminds me that I can go watch both the old and new versions of the film Sabrina, the Paris obsessed bloomer.
