Winter Reading List

Winter Reading List

It is completely clear to me that it is now winter in Chicago.  This season always makes me want to curl up in a ball and read book after book, glass of wine in hand.  I’ve been looking forward to slowing down a bit and catching up on my winter reading list as the weather grows colder and colder.  Hopefully, I’ll be reading on some planes and some beaches as well, but more on that later! I mentioned in my…

5 More Travel Inspiring Books I’ve touched on this subject once before, but books and travel are two things that I happen to be very passionate about.  I like to read about travel and read while I travel.  I read for travel inspiration and sometimes for travel validation (as in, YES! That’s it! That’s why all my money goes towards plane tickets and hotels!).  Whether the books are fiction or non-fiction, informative or not so informative, I’m happy if it…

10 Wanderlust Inducing Books

Reading and traveling are two of my three greatest passions (writing is the third, and I’m doing that now, hooray!) so when they come together in travel related books I am one happy camper. Below are my ten favorite wanderlust inducing books.  I’m sure the list will grow and change, but for now, here they are: 1.      “A Cook’s Tour” – Anthony Bourdain: This is the first book I ever read that made me think “damn, I want…
