This week's French film...Amélie!

@Karen - I totally agree that one month is not enough time for everything that is wonderful about France. :)

Sara C said...

I'm clearly not spending enough time on the computer this month, but I did get a PIJ post up last week about Hemingway's short stories. See here:

http://wordyevidenceofthefact.blogspot.com/2011/07/tpr-challenge-12-ernest-hemingway.html

I'm hoping to get another up this week, but it has somehow become the laziest summer....

Jeanie said...

How exciting to win! Thank you, Karen!

It's too late for Paris in July, but on my other blog (book blog) there are many Paris-oriented books to add to your future list! I'll coordinate it all and send you the list!
