It's the end of Week 3 in Paris in July. I tried to spend the week doing as many Parisian things as I could.
I read a lot of books about Paris last week:
I loved A Paris Year. Janice MacLeod spends a year in Paris and every day she writes and draws and takes photos of iconic and innovative Paris. It's a delight.
I was so intrigued about fireworks on Bastille Day in Paris that I had to see what I could find on YouTube. Look at this magnificence.
Bastille Day is on July 14th. Happy (belated) Bastille Day!
There's a little bit of Paris in Houston, Texas. We stopped by Macaron by Patisse on our anniversary. I picked Fleur de Sel (Salted Caramel), Cappuccino, and Lavender White Chocolate.
I took them home and put off actually eating them as long as I could. Aren't they lovely?
What it looks like to be in France when France wins the World Cup (Thank you, Mark Pryor):
This week I also spent time in my favorite spot in Paris:Paris in July: My Favorite Place in Paris (No, It's Not What You Think)
And I spent a little time cooking some French bread:
How did you spend your week? Did you spend any time in Paris?
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.
