Books that make you go….
Ever read a book that was so good at drawing you into it’s magical world, about a boy who lived under the stairs, that you decided to plan your next vacation around it to experience the real thing?
Ever finish a suspense novel and become convinced that La Pyramide (the inverted pyramid) at the Louvre isn’t just an art installation, but rather a pivotal religious site?
Ever get the urge to Eat, Pray, and Love all over the world because it seemed to work out well for Elizabeth Gilbert?
Ya. Me too.
A good book transports you to another world, another life, a place you can create with your imagination. A great book does everything the good book can do plus it inspires you to get off your couch and travel.

I think the HP book would make me travel… if i had the money.
Yes! I just wrote an article on this – six novels involving travel that have got under my skin and made me want to travel… (See my blog for article). I think books are more powerful than TV for this because of our imaginations. Definitely read a book for travel inspiration! Eat Pray Love is a great example of this – if the film gets you in the mood for travel what does the book do!
