I definitely want to be super annoying and start referring to sidewalks as TROTTOIRS from now on.

Then came the siege, and those who had censored the press left the city more or less to its own devices. Parlement repeatedly issued decrees warning printers that they had to ask permission to publish, but in such hectic times, formal procedure all but ceased to exist. A press more free than ever before sprang up almost as quickly as those barricades. Its focus was the here and now, delivered the sooner the better.

At the same time, something less tangible was also invented: “Paris” as one of those rare words to possess a true mystique and be imbued with a particular atmosphere and an aura of desirability.

My next selection for #nonfictionnovember, for the DESIGN prompt. I have never and—unless they invent 1000% safe and painless teleportation—will never visit Paris (or.........anywhere else), but I‘ve always had such a strong affinity for it and everything else to do with France. Je t‘adore de loin, et je suis content d‘avoir des livres qui m‘aident rêver. (I probably made a few errors there. C‘est la vie!) ???? #nowreading

On this day, a hundred years ago, Sylvia Beach opened her English language bookshop in Paris! It also served as a lending library, and as a publishing house, becoming the first institution to publish James Joyce's Ulysses! 😍📚💕

After a brush with death Helena decides it is time to be an active participant in her own life and leaves 1920‘s England for a year in France. She enrolls in an art school, makes true friends, and meets a handsome American journalist. Well-written, light historical fiction, I enjoyed this entire series of loosely connected books.
