I have to admit that Paris in July
has sort of hit me from out of the blue this year! I mean, I knew it was coming up and Tamara
and I have spent time talking about how we would like to run the event this year but I think time in general just feels like it is moving too fast for me at the moment!
So, I was a little caught off guard on Monday when it came time to choose a Paris themed book to dive into. Luckily my shelves are well stocked...
I have started reading My Life in France
by Julia Child and although I am only a little way into it I am loving her enthusiasm for all things French, particularly the food, and am enjoying being taken into another place and time with her memories of her time in Paris post WW2.
A trip to the library this afternoon also enabled me to pick up another book that I have been wanting to read for a long time - Tete-a-Tete: Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre
by Hazel Rowley. I fear this may be a little heavy going but I am so intrigued by both of these amazing people that I want to give it a go.
How about everyone else - what is helping take you to Paris this week?
