Hello everyone. I finished two freelance pieces and now I’m rewarding myself with an afternoon escape — reading about Paris. My latest book about my favorite city is called “The Secret Life of the Seine” by Mort Rosenblum, former Editor in Chief of the International Herald Tribune. Rosenblum lived for a time on a 54-foot boat made of Burmese teak and brass, tied up alongside the barges near the Pont Alexandre II in the center of Paris.

This is what I call escape reading. Without it, life would be so dreary.

What’s your favorite escape book?

    Escape reading? Has to be I Capture the Castle or Cold Comfort Farm. Or possibly An Italian Affair by Laura Fraser. Or just a really good atlas!
    Enjoy yours!

    Mmm, good question. Probably "One hundred years of solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez. The universe of Macondo never fails to suck me right in, making me forget the world! 🙂

    When I just need to escape it's always Harry Potter.

    I would love to read more when escaping, but this normally is "plants and flowers, gardener's encyclopedia" or something in this kind, this makes me feel like I was somewhere different…

    Dr. Zhivago
