Bastille Day deals

Bastille Day deal

How are you celebrating the storming of the Bastille? The French national holiday calls for something French. So, if you can’t actually go to France for the parade on the Champs-Elysée or attend the dances and festivities traditionally held at fire stations across the country, you can pick up a book from Le French Book and be transported to France.

Le French Book has put together a reading list for Bastille Day, with some deep discounts on these books set in France (mostly, at least), by French authors, chosen and translated for you.

Jacques waited for a response.
“Oh, yes, the young man with the telephone, darling, you remember…”
She walked over to the sideboard and collected her cigarettes and then sat at the table beside her husband. “I think we asked him for tea, didn’t we?”
John smiled as he verbalised the thought. Madame breathed in the fumes from her cigarette.
“That’s right, darling.”
She let the smoke escape into the air as she spoke. “And he said he was in a hurry, darling, and refused our invitation.” She pointedly stared at him.

I died beneath a clear autumn sky in September, late in September when warm cévenol afternoons drift into cooler than usual evenings before winter steals down from the summit of Mont Aigoual.
