Dreaming of France

Oh golly.

THIS is where I'm dreaming about being right now. Shakespeare and Co. in Paris is such an old, creaky, hip and storied place that I can't imagine anyone with a bookish bent not wanting to spend some serious time here. My trip to Paris three years ago only planted an obsession itch that I am trying to relieve with books and cooking and, very possibly, another trip.

I've been collecting favorite bookstores in England for a hoped-for trip in September. But Paris for a bookstore sounds good, too!

Trish, Thanks so much for joining us today. I'm always dreaming of France but try to limit my yearnings to Mondays.
I haven't visited Shakespeare & Co. in all my trips to France. Someday, I plan to. My daughter has been, but she was alone in Paris for about three months. She sought other English-speaking companionship.
Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

Joy - Bookstore Tourism! Sounds like my kind of traveling. I haven't been to England since I was a child but I can imagine the bookstores there must be just lovely.

Paulita - Yes, France... The yearnings are quite persistent with me. I'm looking forward to joining your meme again.

I've never visited either on my three trips to France! I've walked past many times, but with family, non-browser types and I've always wanted the opportunity to spend a bit of time there. One day.

Trish said...

Oh, yes, the non-browsers. I have to leave them for a while so I can go in and get lost among the shelves.

I want to be there too. Le Sigh. That's probably not happening any time soon. Especially since I'll be in Italy in a few weeks so there's no telling when I'll be able to make another trip like this to Paris. I wonder if there is a fun reading spot in Italy that will give the same feeling. Ideas?

Italy sounds like a great place to visit. I'm sure there'll be some reading spots to settle down with a book and a glass (bottle?) of wine ;)
