Introducing the Book Club Section for February 2017 : “The Little Paris Bookshop”
There is something so comforting about a good book. I will admit before I introduced this book club I barely read in 2016. With today’s current event’s it’s easy to scroll Facebook or get sucked into the news and go down the rabbit whole. With a good book, you feel as you have been transported and part of another story. Even if it’s just for a chapter at a time. I was choosing between a few different books for this month but I wanted something uplifting and sweet and I heard so many great things about “The Little Paris Bookshop”
A little about the book:
Monsieur Perdu owns a bookshop by the Seine and is described by the author as ” A literary pharmacist who writes prescriptions for the lovesick” As customers enter his shop he asks them questions to get to know them and then recommends a stack of books based on what they need the most.
“You need your own room. Not too bright, with a kitten to keep you company. And this book which you will please read slowly, so you can take the occasional break. You’ll do a lot of thinking and probably a bit of crying. For yourself. For the years. But you’ll feel better afterward. ” The Little Paris Bookshop Nina George
The only heartache he can’t cure is his own. Twenty years ago the woman he loved walked out on his life and he stopped living. She left him with a letter to read which he put away in a drawer and never read. That is until now..
I don’t want to give too much of the book away but I am sure you will enjoy it! I can’t wait to hear what you think.
I set up a Good Reads Book Club Group. Kristen Beddard has a discussion in there from “Bonjour Kale” and we will start a discussion later this month for “The Little Paris Bookshop” There is no requirement for the Book Club, read at your own pace, encourage a friend/ family member to read with you, skip a book if you don’t like it.
For this month’s giveaway, I have the kinks worked out and this should go much more smoothly in choosing a winner. I will wait until Monday to select the winner and mail out one copy “The Little Paris Bookshop” to a lucky reader. Please comment below and tell me: “What city you follow from” and “Where you like to read (on the train, before bed, coffee shop ect) Please don’t forget to include your email address as I will be contacting the winner this way! Merci and Bon Courage xo
