There’s only so much you can learn from a guidebook.
In an attempt to pull travelers away from their Lonely Planets, to help focus one’s reading of particular cities and countries, I have created a new page on this blog, “Location Reading.”
My list of fiction and non-fiction books is far from complete. That’s where you come in. Please comment below, or better yet, on the Location Reading page, with your favorite travel books and authors.
Eventually I will create a review/ranking system, and I hope to format the list in a more user-friendly way.
Let me know what you think!
