    I sent out my tweet this morning. This book has been on my to-read list for a couple months already.

    I would write about Rue Cler. There’s so much history there (Julia Child!) and its where I spent my honeymoon.

    I’d write about Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis. One of my good friends lives there and visiting her over the years I’ve seen it go from ‘dodgy’ local to gentrified hipster central, and think it would be fascinating to explore why that is and what the local vendors think of all the new ‘trendy’ businesses coming in, and what their background stories are.

    I would write about Rue du Bac where I dream I own an Apartment on that street. Then go shopping for everything including food at Le Bon Marché, pray and attend mass at Chapelle de Miraculeuse Medal, eat at this delicious Italian restaurant beside the Chapelle and just walk the whole street to visit the stores and boulangeries.

    I would write about St laurent Blvd Montreal, which historically divided the city and has an enormous amount of action, past and present to draw on as background for either a contemporary or historical novel.

    I sent out a tweet for you. Haven’t spent enough time in Paris to have a street to write about. I lived on Mulberry Street in New York City. I would write about this wonderful street that bridges between Little Italy and Chinatown. You can get Asian noodles too Italian pastries on this street.

    I’d write about gratitude. The world needs more of it. And we all have so much to be grateful for no matter our circumstances.

    I wish I lived somewhere with an “only street” I could walk to, especially if it were in Paris)! If I were writing about the closest thing like it that I’ve experienced, I’d write about Mt Auburn Street in Watertown MA, which is filled with Middle Eastern grocery shops selling all kinds of treasures that can fill every compartment in your kitchen.

    I also tweeted about your giveaway.

    Thats a really difficult question. If i was to write about a street in France, it was would the main shopping street in the village Cluny. I have delightful memories of loosing time there on my first trip to france. If i was to write about an Australian street, it would be the winding dirt roads to the farm i grewvup on. The wineries, craft houses and many sectret hideaways i knew of as a kid. What a fascinating idea for a book.

    I would visit every stall in Eat Street over time and write my book. Not really a street but a disused container wharf a short ferry or bus ride from the CBD of Brisbane.

    Each weekend the wharf at Northshore Hamilton is transformed into Eat Street – a food lovers paradise. I sure can’t wait for my next trip to Brisbane to experience the extravaganza.
