I have just been reading  an article which came via one of my RSS feeds, and it makes me realise why am such a Francophile. Not only do the French have style and panache, they are sensible as well!  According to the article by Elaine Sciolino, published in The New York Times (June 20, 2012) , the French are still flocking to bookstores – Merci Les Francais! …..See the article here : http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/21/books/french-bookstores-are-still-prospering.html

I love the quote Sciolino attributes to publisher Bernard Fixot in the article – ” There are two things you don’t throw out in France — bread and books.”
