These were one of my favorite discoveries on our trip to Paris this summer. Walking along the river one day, we saw all of these green boxes. We made a few guesses, but couldn't figure out what they were. . .
. . . until the next day, when we saw them opened up. They're used book stands! Businessmen on their way home from work, mothers doing the shopping for the day - everyone stopped to peruse the selection of books.
And I would have been right there with them, if only the books weren't all in French. Instead, I had to settle for taking pictures and enjoying the aesthetic appeal.

My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
