The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs - Elaine Sciolino
I think I liked the idea of this book more than I liked the execution. On the one hand, I liked hearing about the street and the residents and shop keepers of the street. On the other hand, I feel like there was ... I don't know, more history that could have been added? In some cases, I felt like the author was trying too hard to add herself into the story too often. I dunno, this wasn't an unlikeable book of anecdotes, and I love to read about Paris, so all in all I guess it was OK.
