Yesterday we strolled along the quiet, breezy streets of Montolieu looking for a deal. What kind you ask? A book deal. Montolieu is a village in the south-west of France in the Aude department. It’s known as the village of books. It’s one bookshop after another. Rare, manga, comic, dictionaries, historical, literary, classics…… There is one English bookshop but unfortunately it was closed. In spite of that disappointment, we found some other shops that were selling English books along with French ones, but nothing interested me. My husband and daughter got two deals though: 1. My daughter bought two mangas for 6€ and 2. My husband bought a Stephen King novel in French called Ça, which is It in English, for 2€ and it’s an enormous book. I think it around 600 pages. It just wasn’t my day for deals but I did enjoy visiting the shops and sucking up the atmosphere of this relaxing village.

Thanks a lot! Now I want to return to France for good. (maybe I should finish learning French first) LOL. Just looking at the picture of that book store is killing me. Montolieu sounds very pretty.
It is very pretty! I can’t tell you how much English we hear here. Lots of English on holiday and that live in the region.
Oohh, a village of books, I must write that one down for future reference! What a pity the English bookstore wasn’t open, still, at least that prevented your TBR from increasing even more!
You got that right! Lovely village you should visit! I visited for the first time 20 years ago and it’s still as sunny and calm. 🙂
Oooooo *suitably impressed, then snaps out of it to change subject* are you on twitter by chance?
yes ReadEngDee is my name.
Well, this stroll sounds right up your alley.
You know it. Unfortunately I didn’t find one good deal but Michel did.
