Food writer and ex-Chez Panisse dessert chef, Lebovitz,  shares the secrets of French cooking and Parisian living.  The quirks and idiosyncrasies of Parisians that often leave visitors outraged (queue jumping, unhelpful sales staff) are explained with humor and Lebovitz also provides a goldmine of food tips such as where to find the best croissants, chocolates and cheese,  when not to use a knife and fork and how to order coffee.  There is a list of his favorite foodie haunts and recipes so you can recreate the flavors of Paris chez-vous. A bonus of useful information for anyone planning a trip but also a delicious read for anyone with a sweet tooth and the ache for French cuisine.

Beautiful, mysterious, and philosophical, with a voice for landscape as lush as any Romantic, Davis has written one of my favorite books of the year. A novel that bends physics, warps time, and stretches myths, Duplex is a wise exploration of the passage of life into death. And there are robots. And a sorcerer. And at least one apocalypse. Maybe four.   Josh

Set in a small English village, Me Before You tells the story of Louisa Clark, a young woman who takes a job as a caretaker for wheelchair bound Will Traynor.  Will is mourning the loss of the fast paced cosmopolitan life he led before his injury and Louisa is trying to figure out if her future holds more than settling down in the small town where she has always lived.  Although their personalities and situations seem completely at odds, in a very fundamental way each is exactly what the other needs.Anne
