Let’s go for a new book readalong, ready to kick off the new year with, always one of my absolute favourite #BringBackPaper activities!
If you’ve yet to do this, let me tell you a little more about it.
The book readalong is an easy one to get involved with as it’s a bit like an online book club. I will always share the book here, usually a week or so before the month that we will be reading it in, to give you time to get your copy. Then the #BringBackPaper online book club is open to absolutely everyone, so do feel free to come and readalong with us.
The book readalong is a great way to read something that you might not have picked up yourself, and I try to change up the genres from month to month to keep things interesting.
I have chosen a new book for January for us. I thought as it was the start of a new year we should go for something uplifting. So I searched ‘uplifting reads’ and this one came up in the first list I looked over. It felt like serendipity as this has been on my to be read pile for quite a while now, so this is the sign that I, and you, need to read it!

January Book Readalong
So onto January’s book to readalong with and it’s this, The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George.
A little about this month’s book read-along:
On a beautifully restored barge on the Seine, Jean Perdu runs a bookshop; or rather a ‘literary apothecary’, for this bookseller possesses a rare gift for sensing which books will soothe the troubled souls of his customers.
The only person he is unable to cure, it seems, is himself. He has nursed a broken heart ever since the night, twenty-one years ago, when the love of his life fled Paris, leaving behind a handwritten letter that he has never dared read. His memories and his love have been gathering dust – until now. The arrival of an enigmatic new neighbour in his eccentric apartment building on Rue Montagnard inspires Jean to unlock his heart, unmoor the floating bookshop and set off for Provence, in search of the past and his beloved.
The book readalong is really simple to join in with, you just need to get yourself a copy of the book and read it at some during January. Let us know that you’re joining in by dropping by the Facebook group to chat about it, or tweet or Instagram your book with the hashtags #BringBackPaper #BookReadalong. If you’re not on social media, then it matters not, you can join in and not tell the world what you’re up to!
If you are looking to read with us and join in with the #bringbackpaper readalong, we’d love to talk books with you, so go grab yourself a copy of The Little Paris Bookshop and get reading! You are always very welcome in the Bring Back Paper Facebook group to come and chat about it (and all other papery things) and I will get a new book chat thread started there shortly ready for us to share our thoughts on this one.
What do you say, are you looking forward to this one?
