There are a number of books that I want to read. I love reading and can usually read a really good book in a day or so. I will be in PACA sans famille for about a week and can probably read 5 books easily. Then another 5 books the other 2 - 3 weeks ignoring my inlaw. Therefore I will need 10 books to read. Well, that could get expensive. But the other problem is do I buy them here and then transport them to France or buy then on Amazon in France/UK and just have them shipped.
There are a couple by Stephen Clarke. I love this guy, he looks like 1/2 the British men I know and is SUPER funny. I love Merde Happens, where my favorite character Paul West takes a trip across the US. Classic, so funny. Here is a small list of books I want to read so far:
Tail to the Snail
1000 Years of Annoying the French
Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia
The Story of French
A Short History of Nearly Everything
The Time Traveler's Wife
The Lonely Polygamist
I already have 'The White Queen', which I am trying really hard not to read before my trip.
I need 2 more ideas at least. And if you are in France and already have a few books, then I can bring you more for the trade;)
