Une petite bibliothèque gratuite

25fe53c9-69b4-4580-9444-66d3005513a1.jpegWhenever I see a Little Free Library, I can’t resist the urge to browse. I may take a book from one, and leave on in another, but the point is to keep books circulating and being enjoyed, not just sitting on a shelf gathering dust. Last year, I found Country Homes: Elegant weekend retreats from around the world, by Jean Demachy, and indulged my love of design, even though I had a backlog of books I still hadn’t gotten through. Imagine my delight when I recently read it to discover that at least half of the homes were in France! This is because the author was the creator of the French magazine Elle Décor and former publisher of French Elle. If you enjoy window shopping through the lives of chic French people, you’ll enjoy this book. The ample photos will give you tons of decorating inspiration. And now it’s time for me to send it to another petite bibliothèque gratuite. If you’d like to check one out in your area, or perhaps start one if your own, please click on this link. You never know what you’ll find.
