“I say!” “Indeed.” “I’m all astonishment.” These very British phrases were overheard when it was discovered that French License is now at WHSmith!
There you can also find a cuppa, or a shortbread if you’re feeling peckish. But don’t ask your saleslady for a bit of crumpet, unless you fancy a red cheek, you cheeky monkey!
WHSmith is an institution of English-language literature, with two floors of books and magazines. It’s a few doors down from the American Embassy, so my compatriots likely pop in to peruse a periodical, then pose their posterior across the street at the Tuileries park. It’s quite lovely.
“My word,” I said. Words, actually. Sixty thousand of my words, to be clear. And they can all be yours for only €13,99 Good show!
