It’s cold. NOW it’s cold. This January has been positively tropical so far (my crocuses and snowdrops have already sprouted in my window box if that’s proof enough), but as the month enters its final few days, the cold has finally caught up with us. I don’t know about you, but venturing outside is about as appealing as a post-match ice bath and all I really want to do is curl up in the warm at home with a good book.
If you want to pick up some new paperbacks for the occasion, then you need to hit the monthly used book sale at the American Library (10 Rue du Général Camou, 75007) this weekend (1st and 2nd February) where you can buy second hand books for just a couple of euros. You’ll find fiction, non-fiction and children’s books, to replenish your shelves as they reorganise theirs and sell the old and surplus stock. If your bookshelves at home are already sagging under the weight of too many past literary purchases, then you can also donate. Check out the website for more details.
