I bought the first two books by John Baxter because I love reading about life in France, especially Paris life. The other books are finely arranged on a book shelf in my home. They continue to be dusted and wait for me to find just the right time to read them. But I bought THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WALK IN THE WORLD recently because I couldn’t resist the cover. I’m not sure I’m in love with the writing but I love the content. I will keep you posted.
I had to do some sleuthing to find PARIS TO THE PAST. But find it I did. I had to order it into our store and haven’t received it yet. But, I’ve heard from a good source that it is superb. Needless to say, I am chomping at the bit to read this one.
Then there is still The House In France. I had to order this one as well. It should arrive this week, any day now.
You may be asking yourself why I am suddenly focusing on these non fiction titles about Paris and France in general. Well, I am already planning our next European vacation. Never mind that it will be at least two years before we actually embark. I love the planning. I will be delving as deeply as I can into all things French. I will be prepared and will know the most important places to visit and things to do. After all, it’s the mental packing that is a big part of the trip.
Below, you’ll find two photos of the Eiffel Tower taken while we were visiting Paris a few years ago. The night photo was taken at around 10:30 on an early June evening.
There is quite a story surrounding that evening in Paris. One I will be sharing with you shortly.
