|Shop and Library in Paris, France|
When I was in Paris two weeks ago, I actually stumbled upon the cutest of french library-type shops. It was part rental books and part shop, and despite the language barrier (I can barely say Bonjour!) I was definitely interested. How nice it was to see the classics adorned in the beautiful french language and the smell of the aged pages gave all of the books a rustic charm.
And while I am still in the middle of the Picture of Dorian Gray (which is wonderful and comes as no surprise as it is rendered a classic) and the Elegance of the Hedgehog, I will be most delighted to take a brief hour or so break to read this afternoon.
