Ten top books to read before you go to Paris

For Fodor's, Jessica Colley tagged ten books to read before you go to Paris, including:
Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik

Writer Adam Gopnik set out on two journeys simultaneously: moving to a new country and settling into parenthood. In 1995, Gopnik moved to Paris along with his wife and infant son. In addition to learning a language and fumbling through unfamiliar cultural traditions, Gopnik was also faced with the challenges of raising a child in a foreign city. The result is a humorous, touching book that discusses the everyday challenges of being a stranger in a strange land.
