No matter where you are in the world at the moment, it is great time to be reading a book.
If you are down our way in the southern hemisphere, it’s winter – a perfect time to curl up in your favourite chair with a great book (and maybe a blanket or two).
And of course, that means it’s summer in the northern hemisphere – and who doesn’t enjoy whiling away the hours with a book and a cool drink on warm summer’s evening. We certainly saw a lot of people doing just that while we were in France and Spain a couple of weeks ago.
So this week, why not Frenchify Your Friday night and choose to flick through a book about something French?
Personally, I’ve always been a fan of large format books full of photos and have a number of favourites – many of which were listed here.
I also like reading about French lifestyles and I adore a good biography. It won’t surprise anyone that I love reading anything about Chanel. And I’m currently reading about Picasso, the Spaniard who spent so much of his life in France (no prizes for guessing where the inspiration to read that one came from).
Do you have any favourite books about France that others should check out? If so, please share your tips in the comments below.
And until next time – au revoir.
