20 Books of Summer! All About Provence

This summer I’m writing a novel set in Provence so I’ve been dreaming about France. Since I already have a stack of books to inspire me, I thought I’d lengthen my list and join this summer’s 20 Books of Summer event. My books include both fiction and nonfiction set in Provence or elsewhere in France.

    I love the idea of a reading list with a theme–especially for fiction! So, did you choose all 20 books advance? That’s pretty good planning! (How fun would it be to buy all 20 at once, too!)
