Surely you know by now not to ever take a reader seriously? We live so much in fantasy worlds that you can never take us literally.
So, yes, it is July, but, no, I'm not really in Paris. But virtually? Yes. Definitely.
What are my Paris in July plans?
I've got a huge stack of children's books set in Paris that I plan to read and review this month.
I'm planning to read and cook from five new-ish Paris-ish cookbooks.
I've lined up some Paris movies I'll be reviewing.
I'll be sharing photos from our real trip to Paris this year.
Most importantly, I'll be reading and reviewing some new and new-to-me books set in Paris. Here's what I have set aside for July:
Moonlight Over Paris
Paris in the Present Tense
Cara Black's Murder on the Left Bank
Mastering the Art of French Eating
When Paris Sizzled (currently reading)
The Paris Wedding (currently reading)
Love a La Mode
The Book of Salt by Monique Truong (currently reading)
Lisette's Paris Notebook (currently reading)
Paris by the Book (currently reading)

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.
It is now being hosted here.
Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.
Please join the weekly meme at An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.
