Ah Summer...

If you stay home, you may find yourself reading alot of books about far away places!

I've got a great book to add to that list today:

The Little Paris Bookshop cover


A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therapy. Putting the right novels to the appropriate ailments: that's how I sell books. 

This is the philosophy of Monsieur Jean Perdu, the unique bookseller at the heart of Nina George's enchanting new novel, THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP(Crown; On Sale 6/23/15). He has a rare talent for sensing his customers' troubles, and prescribing just the right book to heal their pain. Aboard the Literary Apothecary, his floating bookstore on the Seine, he gives out something more than book recommendations—he gives balms for the soul.

An international hit that has now been translated into thirty languages, THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP spent more than a year on bestseller lists in Germany, and was a bestseller in Italy, Poland, Australia, and the Netherlands, and now it is available stateside! 


For an excerpt, and to let the Apothecary determined what book fits your needs right now, check out the Random House Website!


this is the perfect Summer read- it takes you down the Seine, offers you the lushness of the French countryside, people and food, and stirs your soul for travel! Bookaholics will find themselves in this book, as a true bookaholics know the books that they read when they are feeling blue, happy, romantic, etc. They will find their kinded soul in Monsieur Jean Perdu, as I did! Giving someone the perfect book they need in their life at that moment is akin to finding the perfect gift, isn't it? This book touches on all humane emotions and reminds us to feel, to remember, but also to enjoy the life we have now, and not to get lost in what might have been. Life is a circle and those that are meant to be in our life will come back, in ways we might not expect. It is a book that grabs you and keeps you reading until the end! Just don't read on an empty stomach, as the descriptions of the food will have your raiding the pantry!And Nina was kind enough to include recipes in the book for you too! Don't miss this lovely book this Summer!
