When I am up early, I usually grab a book and read before having breakfast. Even though I’m French, I don’t like coffee. I’m more of a hot chocolate (and croissants) fan. ;-)
For as long as I can remember, old books have fascinated me. I enjoy touching and smelling them because they transcend the ages. They tell more than the stories within their pages.
The spine of the one you see in the photo belongs to the 1913 (or first) edition of “Le Grand Meaulnes.” Alain-Fournier’s novel is a major classic of French literature. I inherited the book from my mother.
