This one took place in Sauliac-sur-Cele only about a 20 minute drive from my village. I took four books to swap and came home with four new ones. I could have taken many more. The man at the door invited me to 'take all you want!' The event drew around 50 people during the afternoon, mostly English-speaking expats, but a few French folks as well as there was a table of books in French. It was a pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon!
"The Olive Farm" by Carol Drinkwater last evening. I'm impressed with it, and I'm pretty picky about books about Provence. When I read both of hers, I may do a book review post about them.
One reason for my trek to this book swap was a man I'm acquainted with who lives in Sauliac-sur-Cele. He's put together a book that he was selling yesterday. Look for a post about him and his book later this week.
