Tuesday Intro: Le Road Trip by Vivian Swift

Last week, we celebrated audiobooks. This week I am reveling in the visual.


by Vivian Swift



Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book she decided to read based on the opening paragraph(s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along.


Paris in July is hosted by Karen and Tamara.
