This week I wanted to share some books with you that I have recently bought. I enjoy reading “memoir” type books about people who give it all up and move to France.
I have read many and I can’t think of one I didn’t like. Now I have added some new titles to my library. I was hoping to have finished this first one before blogging about it but I have not. I am in the middle of it and adoring (almost) every moment.
What I appreciate about Janice’s story is everything she consciously did before realizing her dream. She knew she had to save up a load of money to make her dream work. And she did it! Granted, she had a good job and only herself to consider through this process. But she was very proactive in making her plan happen. And it all started with minimizing and not spending money. For a year. Reading of her success makes me more determined to stay on my minimizing path. Can I, will I, be able to move to France in a year? No. But I love thinking of it as part of a three to five-year plan. If not France, definitely abroad somewhere for the sheer experience of it. The only reason I haven’t finished her book is because I have been also reading her blog. Her writing and voice are so refreshing.
My other books waiting in the wings are these:
So many books, so little time. Can’t wait!
Do you enjoy reading memoirs? Where would you move if you could live anywhere?
Have a beautiful weekend!
P.S. I am working on a giveaway idea…more details to come!!
