I think this might be a small bug with the read_table interface when used to load a directory full of parquets in Windows. It works just fine if I use directly a ParquetDataset object to read the table represented by the directory, or if I use read_table in a linux terminal.
Apparently the problem comes from the _make_manifest() method in parquet.py, I think around line ~1045. Either _is_path_like() or the FileSystem method isdir() fail to recognize the path as a valid directory (I tested with a raw Windows path and a pathlib.WindowsPath object).
I hope this helps a little.
P.D. Thank you for your effort developing this package!
