I'm such a francophile its rather sickening really, so this will be the puurrfect chance to indulge in all things Frenchie and get the summer off to an oh-so-chic start! The event will run from the 1st - 31st July 2011 and will basically involve diving headfirst into anything French; be it a book, film or indeed a big fat chocolate gâteau and reporting back on your success to the blogosphere. I myself intend to rekindle my love for a few old French films and get stuck into to some of those Folios (the French version of a Penguin book I suppose) that sit languishing on my shelf and that I am always too lazy to pick up and read. The ladies themselves have given us some interesting ideas:
- Reading a French book - fiction or non-fiction
- Watching a French movie
- Listening to French music
- Cooking French food
- Experiencing French art, architecture or travel (lucky Tamara!)
- Or anything else French inspired you can think of...
Weirdly enough I'm a big fan of banlieu-style French rap so perhaps I could get down with it and dust down a few of my old CDs. If any of you have a passion for all things French then do head over to these ladies' websites and see what this great event is all about. A list of participants can be found on Book Bath.
