Vive le Livre Book Club (Page 3)

Our Vive le Livre (Long Live the Book) Book Club is a celebration of books, as we simply love to read and would like to share. Our Book Club offerings give a particular focus  on those topics dear to Pumpjack & Piddlewick’s hearts ~ France and/or the French, wine making and animal antics. We recommend books, old and new, classique and nouveau, all enjoyed by Pumpjack & Piddlewick. We will not be reviewing or offering books we didn’t enjoy and consequently can’t recommend to you. That is just a waste of time, in our book. However, as an online Club, we invite you to comment, agree, disagree, and recommend books you think we would like. We’re always open to new reads.

Read a good book (un bon livre) lately? My downtime always encompasses a book. When I first moved to France I happened on this book French Women Don’t Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano. Possibly like some of you, the title did not actually excite me. Intrigued, maybe. But books inRead More →
