Happy Friday everyone…
Seems I’ve been writing a lot about Paris this week. I keep getting emails from Air France saying they’re having a grand summer sale with one-way fares around $250. And I really want to go. But, alas, I can’t for now…

So here’s to a weekend of vicarious living. I just started reading the Paris Wife by Paula McLain on my Kindle Cloud. It’s a historical fiction about the time Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley spent in the City of Light. It’s good so far, the perfect end-of-summer read.

I also downloaded the latest copy of Marie Claire Idees on Zinio in a quest for a new craft project. Their patterns are so cute. The only drawback is I can’t read French. (Can I Google translate an entire magazine?)

What are you doing this weekend?

  1. I’ve just placed ‘The Paris Wife’ in my wish list only yesterday! It looks good.I really like your photograph that jammy bread looks delicious…ah! shame I’m wheat intolerant, I totally miss bread.

    Have a great week-end.

  2. Love Marie-Claire Idees. Usually buy it at the newstand at Laurel Canyon and Ventura. I’ve noticed that ideas or idees I see there first often turn up decorating the likes of Anthropology or Starbucks, or some such.

  3. I’m laying low this weekend, feeling a little under-the-weather … but I have been thinking about reading ‘The Paris Wife’ too … it’s my kind of book! :)

  4. I just picked up The Paris Wife on Thursday. I read a sample a few months ago and loved what I read. I finished Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast earlier this week and decided it was time to read The Paris Wife. Enjoy :)

  5. have you read a moveable feast by hemmingway? it’s on my to read list but that’s meant to be an amazing representation of paris. i really want to do a language course this year and can’t decide between spanish (which my friend would rather learn) or french! decisions decisions



  6. I very nearly bought The Paris Wife yesterday at the going-out-of-biz sale at my neighborhood Borders. But. It was still too steep for me right now. I look forward to taking it out of the library.

    I love MCI as well. No, I don’t think Googleytubes will translate it. lol…but you can find someone to help you, no?


  7. Whenever I go to Barnes & Noble (to get my monthly stash of magazines) I always see “The Paris Wife.” I have been tempted to buy the book several times. Just might buy it next time I go.

  8. Oh my gosh, I read The Paris Wife earlier this summer and totally fell in love. I’m such a Hemingway fan that it was cool to see things from the other side. I recently read Interpreter of Maladies and South of Superior, which were both good reads.

  9. I read The Paris Wife right before I left for France in June. I loved it too and felt like it was the perfect read to get me in the mood for France. Not that it takes too much to get in the mood!
