French Book Giveaway -- A Paris Apartment

In only one year and 124 days, I'll be moving to France.
I know this because my husband set up a countdown clock.
That seems like forever to wait, but I know the time will sneak up on me.
One way I've decided to prepare is by giving away some books. Rather than dropping them off at the local Goodwill, I thought it might be fun to have a book giveaway every Sunday, the day before Dreaming of France.
This week, I'd like to give one of you a hardback copy of A Paris Apartment by Michelle Gable. I reviewed this book in October 2014 for FranceBookTours. You can read my review here, if you're interested.
I enjoyed the rich details in this novel, which took place in present time and the Belle Epoque in Paris.
I'm sure you'll love to get your hands on a copy.
So sign up below. Please leave a comment and let me know how to reach you in case you win.

I haven't read anyone's blogs in over a week, been busy sightseeing and a slow internet access at hotel.
I can't believe you have actually set a date!! That is super fantastic! I am so pleased for you both.

I think this attaches to my email address. This book is on my list to read - crazy about stories that take place in Paris and France and I love your sharing of your family's antics. You probably don't know how many people you connect with and how many people sympathize and celebrate with you.

Mystica said...

Anything to do with Paris is for me. I've got Paris on my bucket list and hope that this will be the year it will get visited.

I have a very soft spot for Paris. I once spent 2 weeks there when I was younger and have been dying to go back every since. It's magical! :)

What a wonderful way to get ready to move. And all who win one of your books, will have a small remembrance. Of course, you will still blog and we can stay in touch. I will never get to visit Paris, but by reading books I can travel from my armchair.

Paulita said...

Judy, What sweet sentiments.

Because I love Paris, went many years ago and can't go again to Paris this year (or next, or the next) and this would help :) And I love novels with some history!
