Pudlo Paris - newer edition expected soon?

Hi all

I am poised to buy the various Pudlo guides I'll need for the upcoming trips. I see the Paris guide is 2007-2008. I've no problem with buying/using that one, but, if a 2009 version is around the corner I may as well wait and buy it.

I haven't seen word of that yet and was wondering if anyone else may have better knowledge about that than I do. For now I will hold off on that particular title to see if anything changes in the next month or so, but I'm still curious.

Thanks!

flygirl...

Just to put my 2 cents worth in here. I bought the Pudlo France 2008 guide for my trip to France last year and it was invaluable...spot on for every restaurant we went to that was listed in the book. And we used it for almost every restaurant we went to!

Just FYI, my local library carries the 2008-09 version of Pudlo. I just borrow it for my trip. I don't always feel like spending money for something that I only use once and the info becomes outdated quickly.

Having said that, I'm lucky that my local library is part of a huge network in the Metro Boston area, so I can request any books from any libraries in the network. I just took out the 2009 Fodors guide for Austria. It was still being "processed" when I requested it last week, so it's brand new and no one else has even used it.

I got both my Normandy/Brittany and Provence Pudlos a few days ago. 8 weeks from now we leave and will start using the first one! They are fairly slim books, perhaps 3/4 of an inch thick, if that.

YK, our library is pretty decent too. I made my first visit there recently and was surprised to see all the 2009 guidebooks it had. ("First visit", because I singlehandedly help keep Amazon's stock up!). Is it the 2008-2009 Paris restaurant Pudlo, or the one for all of France? I didn't think the 2009 Paris resto one was out yet, in English anyway.

I have a ten year old Michelin Atlas of France (the whole country) that I am debating whether or not to replace. I've used it for many a driving trip but it IS ten years old.

flygirl - you're absolutely right. I misread it, it's the 2007-08 Paris guide, and the 2008-09 France guide available.

The Paris guide is actually quite heavy and thick, and since we only had 2 days in Paris on our trip last year, I just copied the relevant sections (by arr. and by price) instead of bringing the entire book with me.

It is my understanding that the English version is not published that often. I waited several years before the 2007-2008 came out to get one and I think it will have to do for several more years. Great book though.
