<b>From the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>My Paris Kitchen </i>and <i>L'Appart, </i>a deliciously funny, offbeat, and irreverent look at the city of lights, cheese, chocolate, and other confections.<i><br /></i></b><br />Like so many others, David Lebovitz dreamed about living in Paris ever since he first visited the city and after a nearly two-decade career as a pastry chef and cookbook author, he finally moved to Paris to start a new life. Having crammed all his worldly belongings into three suitcases, he arrived, hopes high, at his new apartment in the lively Bastille neighborhood. But he soon discovered it's a different world <i>en France</i>.<br /><br />From learning the ironclad rules of social conduct to the mysteries of men's footwear, from shopkeepers who work so hard not to sell you anything to the etiquette of working the right way around the cheese plate, here is David's story of how he came to fall in love with—and even understand—this glorious, yet sometimes maddening, city.<br /><br />When did he realize he had morphed into <i>un vrai parisien</i>? It might have been when he found himself considering a purchase of men's dress socks with cartoon characters on them. Or perhaps the time he went to a bank with 135 euros in hand to make a 134-euro payment, was told the bank had no change that day, and thought it was completely normal. Or when he found himself dressing up to take out the garbage because he had come to accept that in Paris appearances and image mean everything. <br /><br />Once you stop laughing, the more than fifty original recipes, for dishes both savory and sweet, such as Pork Loin with Brown Sugar–Bourbon Glaze, Braised Turkey in Beaujolais Nouveau with Prunes, Bacon and Bleu Cheese Cake, Chocolate-Coconut Marshmallows, Chocolate Spice Bread, Lemon-Glazed Madeleines, and Mocha–Crème Fraîche Cake, will have you running to the kitchen for your own taste of Parisian living.

The original facts and details of the Titanic disaster from the newspapers of the world bring forward the story in a vivid and striking way! <br />Join the news stories in action as the first reports told of the RMS Titanic being towed to Halifax and all the passengers saved in erroneous first reports. <br />Learn how the survivors were saved and about the heroes of the night who sacrificed their own lives so that others may live.<br />The story of the heroes and the wonderful new wireless device that was so critical in saving lives as well as startling new details of a fire on board the Titanic which had been burning since the ship left port in Southampton. These details and others were on the front pages of great newspapers beginning hours after the ship sank. The U.S. Senate convened a hearing three days following the plunge to the ocean floor by the greatest ship ever built to that day.<br />Why did Capt. Smith ignore warnings of ice fields ahead? <br />Why were there only enough lifeboats for one-third of the passengers? <br />Was the ship speeding? <br />See the best photos and graphics that survive from the original coverage in this great book AND in the paperback version now available on Amazon. <br />This book on Kindle by a 21st century reporter looking back at the most significant disaster to that day in the 20th century will help you separate the facts from the fiction.

When my husband and I started full-time RVing, we knew nothing about RV living. We made it up as we traveled to all fifty states, constantly googling things like "how to RV" and "what is boondocking?" Meanwhile, we flooded the bathroom, took ice cold showers, and got stuck in the mud. <br /><br />Now, we've been full-timing for over three years and we've learned the ins and outs of RVing America. <br /><br />In this guide, I answer all of the most common questions we receive about RV living, from how to choose the right RV to how we get mail on the road, to how to find free camping.<br /><br />This guide is for anyone exploring the RV lifestyle and looking for RVing books to help make the transition easier. Also, because I want to make sure this book is valuable for you, below you can see a few specific areas of RVing I cover.<br /><br />A few topics I cover in the guide: <br />- How to find great internet on the road<br />- The costs of full-time RVing<br />- Whether or not to tow a car behind your RV<br />- What we do for health insurance while traveling<br />- The best RVing clubs and memberships<br />- Our favorite apps for RVers<br /><br />A few topics I DON'T cover, since I have zero experience in these areas, are:<br />- Traveling with kids<br />- How to downsize to an RV from a house<br />- How to travel with pets<br /><br />Transitioning to living on the road was the best decision my husband and I could have ever made. RVing has improved our marriage and our life together, and we've seen more of America than we could have ever imagined. <br /><br />While this book isn't about our story or why you should travel, it will be a useful tool as you find yourself asking a million different questions about what it's like living in an RV.<br /><br />Oh, and don't forget to use the #RVlife on Instagram once you start traveling. That's what all the cool kids do.
