I mean it. If you can’t go in person, PLEASE get this book. It’s just genius.

This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves Paris, whether or not they’ve been lucky enough to go.
“With his incomparable eye, photographer Pete Saloutos captures the City of Light in all its timeless beauty and breathtaking romance. This collection is a true work of art, and a must-have for anyone who has ever dreamed of visiting Paris.”

I don’t care what anyone says, that ultra light 6-lb laptop you bought for travel is gonna end up weighing your luggage down by an extra 20 pounds. I don’t know why this is, but I found the perfect solution at TigerDirect. I’m in LA for Book Expo America, and I’ve brought along the Asus eeepc. It’s about the size and weight of a paperback book and I’m already swooning. It sells for around $330. Having light luggage again? Priceless.
