And Pass The Brie While You're At It

*
For some reason, summer seems to be the time that I start feeling beautifully mad and Frenchified. Was it only three summers ago that I couldn't bear to listen to any music or read about anyone but Edith Piaf?  Anyway, I'm completely on board with this challenge, more than I originally realized.  Taking a fresh look at my shelves, I'm struck by how Gallic they are:

Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter - Simone de Beauvoir
Nausea - Jean-Paul Sartre
The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas
Les Miserables - Victor Hugo
Cousin Bette - Honore de Balzac

You bet I'm ready -- Allons-y!
