All the world will be your enemy, prince with a thousand enemies,
and whenever they catch you, they will kill you.
But first, they must catch you, digger, listener, runner,

Welcome to 2020! As soon as Christmas and New Year's celebrations are over, the winter literary season begins for our greatest pleasure. Even though we haven't read all the books we had chosen this fall, it’s with great interest that we find out the new winter books. And since there are many, we have prepared a small selection for you.
Winter is coming, with lower temperatures in December, the fog, the rain and the snow. It is the season of long and lovely nights by the fire, if you have a fireplace. They are the best moments to relax in your favourite armchair with a hot drink and a good book. To accompany your evening or weekend readings, we offer you the December herbal tea. It is a gentle and warm herbal tea that has the advantage, as well as being good, of strengthening your immune defenses and preventing colds and other unpleasantness of winter.
The autumn publishing season
For the new literary season, hundreds of new books are arriving at our booksellers to the delight of all. First novels, English or foreign literature, thrillers, essays or short stories, there is plenty of choice. And the most you have, the more difficult it is to choose. In this multitude of new books, we have selected new titles we have enjoyed among the books released from mid-August until mid-September. We will propose you other selections in the coming weeks.

Lune Bleue Bijoux is a brand of handmade jewels taking inspiration from different cultures around the world. They are made from stainless steel, silver, or gold-plated. Right from the launch of her very first collection, her style seemed very promising. And that’s why in May 2018, we had introduced you to her brand in one of our articles which contained an interview with the creator of the brand, Alix. If you missed the article you can go read it here.
A new website
