Resolved: Be a Better Francophile — A Book List — 6 Comments

  1. Ooh, those macarons look heavenly! I’m always intrigued by occupation-era France, but this year I only read one book about it, Wine and War. I talked about it during NonFicNov, it’s a great book about how winemakers in France during WWII handled the occupation.

    My only time in France to-date was a 12 hour layover where all I did was stay in a hotel near the airport. Hopefully that will change in the next few years!

  2. Oh my, Joy… this is my true passion! I read SO many books in 2011 to prepare me for the two week trip I took in July of that year.

    Let me take time this week to cull through my list and I will come back to post.

    As a side note… I have all intentions of returning to Paris for a three month period of time to live as a true native. It is a bucket-list item that WILL come true 🙂

  3. I think you need to return to France if you really want to be a better Francophile. I took my macarons home to Canada-they were traveling macarons Paris-LA-LA Canada and then I cut them into portions to share with family members.
    I am reading Paris right now and loving it.

  4. Joy, I really enjoyed reading Paris also. I agree with Esme that the thing you can do most to increase your Francophile-ness is to visit France again. Wish I could. Three kids in college next year, no travel budget. Thanks for playing along.
