My favorite past time is reading-online stories about Parisian life – from ex-pats to locals – sharing their opinions, observations and trivia about the city of love. This blog in particular sparking an interest after I read the following bullet points author Amanda Randone penned on Coveteur:
Randone states the following: 1. French-Girl style is a myth. 2. Speaking French Isn’t Enough. 3. There is a ‘social code’ in Paris and you don’t want to get it wrong. 4. Take the Bus. 5. Prepare For Lots of Question. And she backs up her observations here and more here just in case, like me, you often dream about moving to Paris.
On the flip side, I came across this bit of reading America The Anxious and have ordered a copy. While I wait for my paperback to be tossed from the bottom of the stairs up to my front door by ‘delivery company to be left nameless’ – I ask – have you read the book and if so – what do you think? The cover says it all.
The idea is one I’ve tossed around for a few years, but haven’t had the gut to put it in print. I simply keep my ideas in an online journal and save-draft it.
Here’s what author – Ruth Whippman Indexed for our reading pleasure.
