I’m sorry, but please, Facebook, don’t spy stupidly on me. I’m French … next time you do that, it will not just be a Petula Clark joke, my President will spoil your whole internet thing for your Thanksgivings, not just sabotage Facebook a short while.
Besides, I’m not sure you are not wasting your time and American taxpayers money with me : I’m just a normal French man with a normal French Cat and a standard MacBook. I can’t see why this could be of interest for America, all the more, since most of my eBooks are on Amazon, all blog posts on WordPress, and over 42 000 messages on Twitter, not to mention Gmail.
And by the way, don’t be overstupid, don’t annoy me and so many people just because we want to make real new friends in facebook and you prefer your customers to stay with your standard bunch of gamers, sick brains, and call-people.

Of course, not everybody everywhere wants to drinks tea, when it’s “tea time” in Paris, France … And of course, the people who love “Café du matin à Paris” are not just “anybody”. But the good news is, it’s free to like it anywhere, everywhere, anytime.

Howabout a coffee ?

Some more readings about France, present, and other more important issues.
Some more “West Coast” (and free) readings about future.
And some rather “East Coast”, “business” readings (free, of course).

Not that praising the Brits be my pleasure, especially as they cheated France a couple of time, but great games, with talent, energy and a little bit of Madness. Bravo and thank you @ everybody. Bravo and thank @ London. Bravo and merci, Madam. (Please, click on the hereabove picture for the debriefing of the games, and on the hereunder image for more praising of Great, Olympic Britain, which is as reliable as ever, both as a great friend and as a great … match).
Anyway, Olympics are as good as holiday and watching TV on the sofa with a cool beer or singing old anthems in a stadium or the streets, but it’s time to go back to real competition #InRealLife, now (please click on picture to download & read the free eBook) if you want to be able to pay the rent and to afford a German car made in Britain (or Germany, but those are much less fun, much more German).

Some additional e-reading may be needed about how to be smarter at work or on the beach, and other important issues about the future of Europe, France, Britain and other places of the changing world these days. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching things happen and others enjoy success, love, French
learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times).
Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).

Smart cats don’t eat, neither read crap, even on summer holiday. The good news is, whatever remote place for their holiday has now either electricity, or solar power available for cooking and reading (with exception of certain no-wifi areas overseas).
Some e-reading smart cats are Kindle addicts. Whatever works, as long as they are happy.
Some smart e-reading cats are somewhat more oldschool and prefer traditionnal sofa reading and “pdf” because it looks more familiar and can easily be printed (or they just like the French Youscribe MarketPlace). Whatever works, as long as they are happy.
Some cats, stay or fat, are Facebook, or coffee addicts. Whatever works, as long as they are happy with what they read …

Paris-Plages will remain open from July 20th through August 19th. Some people may prefer places with more aggressive mosquitos, more exclusive cigar smoke, a good jet-lag and fake Gucci glasses or Vuitton bags on sale on the beach. Let them fly …
Please kindly click on hereafter pictures for a sample of French eBooks that can be downloaded on Amazon.com to e-read on the beach or wherever enjoyable in Paris or other nice places of the world.

Of course, one may prefer “real” paper books, or other kinds of smaller or bigger electronic devices to read on. But the fact is, Kindle and its likes don’t bring sand in your bed back home, neither overload your luggage or Beach bag, and free you from exotic opening hours, and peak season prices of bookstores in tourist places. Please … kindly click on picture to read more.
