Paris In July Reading Challenge!!

Paris in July? Sounds like a plan!  Thanks to Karen of BookBath and Tamara of Thyme for Tea, I will be immersed in all things Parisian come July - food, music, films and books.  I can't wait! I participated in this fun reading challenge last year and had a blast listening to Yann Tiersen and watching 2 Days in Paris. This year I plan to listen to more French music, read a few books (A Novel Bookstore, Lunch in Paris and possibly, My Life in France) and eat some yummy French food whilst watching a French film or two. 

In case you are wondering what the rules are, here goes:

Paris in July will run from the 1st - 31st July 2011 and the aim of the month is to celebrate our French experiences through reading, watching, listening to, observing, cooking and eating all things French.

There will be no rules or targets in terms of how much you need to do or complete in order to be a part of Paris in July - just blog about anything French and you can join in.

Some ideas for the month might include:
- Reading a French book - fiction or non-fiction
- Watching a French movie
- Listening to French music
- Cooking French food
- Experiencing French art, architecture or travel (lucky Tamara!)
- Or anything else French inspired you can think of...

If you are interested in being a part of this experience leave a comment at BookBath or Thyme for Tea.  And just so you know, there will be weekly French themed prizes during the month.

Sign up now and grab one of the Paris in July buttons that Karen and Tamara have created to add to your blog!

Hope to see you in Paris this July!!
