If you only read one book in French, make it this one.

Well, the votes are in, the next dual language book will be in French/English.  I got a few votes for Les Miserables,  a few urgent pleas  for  more Balzac, and a lot of La Petit Prince.  Les Miz is way to long, I assume, and there is no one who's taken French who hasn't read the  Little Prince at some point. It's the Catcher in the Rye.  

So instead, let's try Camus. Which doesn't  rhyme with "famous", sorry Reagan, Peace Be Upon Him.   It has the advantage of being short, not too antiquated French, and the first line of a Cure song and album, "Standing on a Beach".

Thanks for your input into the GrokReader books!
