Book Beginning: On Rue Tatin by Susan Herrmann Loomis

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS

THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!


MY BOOK BEGINNING



The story of our adventure, our move to Rue Tatin, began some thirteen years earlier, when I first went to live in Paris.

-- On Rue Tatin: Living and Cooking in a French Town by Susan Herrmann Loomis.

I love pretty much any we-renovated-an-old-house-in-France-and-here-is-what-we-ate book. Substitute Italy or Spain for France, and I'll read those too. If expats start renovating Bavarian barns or Scottish chapels and writing about the prickly but ultimately welcoming villagers, I'll read those too.




Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

I love this style of book too. It reminds me of that book set in Tuscany - I can't remember the title.

I love books about renovations! The setting sealed the deal for me.

Cute intro to your current read. I guess I would probably want to read any book about France and food, too.

What is it about reading about France and food that is so addictive? Sounds like one I'd like to read, too. Hope you enjoy it.

I thought I'd commented, but I had such a tough time getting online (STAYING online lol) last week, Friday being the worse!

The opening pulled me in straight away!
