What I'm Crushing on This Week: Paris, A City Revealed

Sunday, March 28, 2010
You know how I looooove to browse bookstores. Could spend all day in one. I especially love vintage book stores and the quaint ones you find tucked away in a city. Being that I'm not a city dweller, I have to be content with browsing my local Barnes and Noble or Borders. Yesterday, I did just that.

I have a love affair with Paris which began on my first trip there in the early 90's. If you've ever been there, I'm sure you can understand why I love it so. Everything about the city appeals to me, the history, the architecture, the adundance of culture, the pastries, the bread, the wine. I must have been a Parisian in a former life.

When I spied this book from across the store, at least 100 feet away, I just knew I had to have it.

Paris: A City Revealed by Mike Gerrard and Donna Dailey

Discover Paris with "Paris: A City Revealed". From the islands where it all began to its outer limits, this book records and celebrates the famous city with photographs of the unique buildings, museums, landmarks and citizens, illustrating just what it is that makes Paris so romantic and stylish. The book is divided into ten regional sections based on the arrondissements and special fold-out sections make the most of the fabulous images. Know somone with a love of Paris? This would make the perfect gift.

I've fallen in love with Paris all over again!
