I've been reading a lot, and got several nice books as gifts. So this week will be all about books.

I read somewhere that everyone woman deserves a lost Summer. Well I would settle for a lost month and I want that month in Paris. This lovely book will provide much inspiration as I work towards that goal.

Take a stroll through the real Paris with this beautifully photographed and gorgeously packaged book. Organized by arrondissement, Paris takes readers through the city's most charming streets, revealing best-kept secrets and little gems at every turn: ateliers overflowing with notions, cafés with their neat rows of macaroons, markets abundant with fresh flowers, shaded parks, and creative hotspots. Packed with vibrant color photographs that capture the spirit of Paris and packaged as a hefty flexi-bound paperback with a ribbon page marker, the book is a beautiful object in its own right. The accessible writing invites readers to dip in and out and provides history and context for each spot on the journey. Visually rich and totally inspiring, Paris is a treasure for lovers of art, style, design, food, and, of course, Paris! - Amazon
