now at WH Smith

“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!
