    I'm a sucker for a good autobiography. My top 2 picks: "Le Scaphadre et le papillon" by Bauby and the lesser known "Une soupe aux herbes sauvages" by Emilie Carles.

    Highly recommend "Kamouraska" by Anne Hébert. It's fantastic!

    The Gap shirtdress was très cute. I bought one last season that is striped with ruffules. Love it.

    Good idea E to get the blogworld to help us find a new book. Une soupe aux herbes sauvages is a great...but I've already read it.

    OOh I have also a new shirtdress (Zara) but it has sort of a subtle tuxedo front pleaty thing. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - I know I've read it, can't remember a thing about it. And of course your flat had something to do with it - I mean, come on! They'll be able to say, "we got engaged in Belleville"...

    Hey Elisabeth! I know you've been as busy as ever, but it's always nice to pop in and see an update on your end. That is a great shirtdress! Shame that this season I won't be checking out all the new stuff, simply because I'm pregnant... But believe it or not, I managed to find an adorable shirtdress of my own in a maternity shop, and it's one of my favorite things right now.

    BTW, in my humble opinion, you can't beat Nancy Huston for an excellent read in French -- and I have Lauren to thank for that discovery! L'Empreinte de l'ange is magnificent, and I'm now working on Lignes de faille... Wonderful!

    Thank you for these suggestions everyone!!

    Claire, He actually proposed while they were walking on the Seine, just when the Tour Eiffel began to sparkle (aww). So the connection is even further, but I still feel I somehow contributed. :)

    ohhhhh quiche!! love it. I hope you find a book you love. :)

    If you're up for some African Lit, then L'aventure ambiguë by Cheikh Hamidou Kane is one of my all-time favorites. It is beautifully written.

    Three words -- Jean de Florette.

    Roubaud! La forme d'une ville change plus vite, hélas, que le coeur des humaines. It's not just because I just wrote about it for my mémoire, but because it's beautiful and it makes you think about Paris in such a different way. Also, it's a book of poems so you can go bit by bit. Every time I read one of Roubaud's books I want to take the train up to Paris, find him, and give him a hug. Sigh

    congrats to your sister :)

    How about "Stupeur et Tremblements" by Amelie Nothomb?

    Hmm.Thanks you for news and site.Very good.

    Hi to Elizabeth and all on the board! It's been a while.
    (not online a whole lot lately...)

    I found a book at the library and thought about you in Paris.

    Have you read:

    "Time Was Soft There,"
    by Jeremy Mercer?

    It is an interesting read on his
    adventures/misadventures in Paris.

    I've heard of it, but haven't read it. Thanks for that!

    Hi, do you still take part in the bookclub? If so, where do I sign up?!
    Pour info, my favourite French novel is La Nuit des Temps, Barjavel.

    i never seen something like this before!!!nice post thanks for sharing!

    It is never too late to learn. good articles are always of support..

    The Belstaff coat Classic Tourist Trophy is the official name of this Belstaff boots Outlet, however it will commonly be referred to as the ‘Trialmaster’ because of its resemblance to the 50’s and 60′s model. The Belstaff jacket is also re-enforced with doubled material at the shoulder and elbow points. Fot those who prefer to wear this Belstaff jackets for casual rather than on the bike, removing the protectors couldn’t be simpler – a quick unzip of the pockets and the Belstaff Mens Blouson is as good as one built soley for fashion.Welcome to Buy Belstaff leather online store
