Last month I was at the Vancouver airport in Vancouver, British Columbia, on my way home from the Special Libraries Association conference. I had spent 3 days totally immersed in copyright law for librarians and of course had a great time doing so. I had ten minutes to catch my plane and nothing non-work related to read so I went to the airport bookstore. The first book I picked up was red, white and black, with an Eiffel Tower in the background. It was called J’adore Paris by Isabelle Lafleche.
I turned to the back cover of the book where I read a summary of the book…”When chic Parisian lawyer Catherine Lambert lands her dream job as intellectual property director for Christian Dior, she’s prepared to embark on the ride of her file…” I was already amused. How many books do I randomly pick up where the main character is an IP lawyer? And so began my first summer read.
Verdict is in – a quick read, amusing, fun and silly. Catherine Lambert is the sort of Carrie Bradshaw IP lawyer. For a copyright person, great book to start off the summer read!
