Ramadan has always been a great ally when it comes to reaching my reading goals and this year is no different. When I'm not catching up with my favorite series or annoying the hell out of my husband, I am usually just curled up in a ball silently reading a book, which is quite nice to be honest. One look in my already-filled up bookshelf however, and it's become more obvious that space would really pose a huge problem for us if I don't stop acquiring more books. Yes, I've amassed quite a home library in our five-year stay here in Dubai, but this bookworm just couldn't bring herself to stop. And no, this isn't me complaining at all. :)
I've spent a good part of today wandering the aisles of Borders in Mall of the Emirates and ended up going home with a beautiful reading list that is, coincidentally, so Paris-inspired.
You know you've had a good day when you managed to snag fresh crisp copies of Stephanie Perkins' Anna and the French Kiss, Chris Pavone's The Expats: A Novel, and How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits by "four stunning and accomplished Frenchwomen" Anne Berest, Audrey Diwna, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas, without paying a single dirham. No, they weren't entirely free, only ended up redeeming all my card's reward points for these three lovely books and I feel so glad I did *pats self*.
My husband and I have just started a separate travel fund hopefully for a lengthy trip to Europe next year which of course includes Paris. And so while I wait for our wallet to fatten up, for now I'll just hope that these books would excite me and give me a feel of what's in store for us in the city of love.
