Lisez-vous des francais?

Need to improve your French?  This French grammar may be just the ticket! Bescherelle is the brand used in most French immersion programs and this can help your student break the barrier toward French proficiency. Appears never to never have been used. $23 at Amazon1.

Legende Doree de mes filleuls means "Golden Legend of Young Saints." This volume recounts stories of saints who showed exceptional virtue at a very young age, and who participated in the major episodes of Christian history. The book is in French and is $18 at Amazon1. It has many colorful illustrations by Jacques Pecnard. The book is tight and unmarked except for previous owner's name and imprint on a corner of the title page.  The cellophane-like protective layer on the cover has been pulled away in some areas. 

While French may be a mystery to you, and thus inaccessible through these books, don't forget that we have a mini-mystery sale coming up February 6-11 at the Reston Regional Library where the mysteries will be accessible and in English! Mark your calendar to stop by and stock up. You know the worst of the winter is still ahead of us. A steaming pot of stew, a stack of good books, and ahhhh...you're ready!
