Summary: Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.
After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country’s rivers, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself.
Summary: From the author of Immoveable Feast and We’ll Always Have Paris comes a guided tour of the most beautiful walks through the City of Light, including the favorite walking routes of the many of the acclaimed artists and writers who have called Paris their home. Baxter highlights hidden treasures along the Seine, treasured markets at Place d’Aligre, the favorite ambles of Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and Sylvia Beach, and more, in a series of intimate vignettes that evoke the best parts of Paris many charms. Baxter’s unforgettable chronicle reveals how walking is the best way to experience romance, history, and pleasures off the beaten path . . . not only of La Ville-Lumière, but also, perhaps, of life itself.

Confiture Bonne Maman Cerises Fruits Choisis I wish I had a croissant for these preserves. This cherry based preserves that are made a bit of lemon. I checked out the ingredients and at the end, it says “Malgré tous nos soins, cette confiture peut contenir des noyaux.”, which basically means as much as they try, there may be stones. It gave me a laugh but I have had eaten this a few times and there are no stones.
La Boulangerie French Crepes Crepes are one of the first things I think of when I think of Paris. For packaged crepes, this was pretty good. The filling is a yummy hazelnut. I only wish there more in the box. I could eat a whole package of these.
Ggorangnae Company Je T'Aime Socks Je T'Aime in French means “I like you”. These sweet socks are comfortable and cute!
Eiffel Tower Key Chain I love Paris, though I have never been. This keychain is already on my keychain and it's a reminder that someday I will cross that ocean and see Paris.
Lavender Sachet This little sachet is printed with a Paris print and is filled with dry lavender. You can put this in your drawer with your clothes or tuck it under your pillow at night.
French Sweets There was an assortment of milk, dark, and white. There was also some chocolate caramel pieces. I did have a Gavottes Crepe Dentelle cookie, but it got ate before I could take a picture. It was a tasty sweet and was similar to a Graham cracker.
