Since I am spending the day making my way to the Philadelphia Metro Area in preparation for my Keynote Address to the Southeast Pennsylvania Library Association I thought I could put a traveling spin on the Monday Discussion.
So today, I will ask you where and when are your favorite places to arm chair travel through a book?
I’ll go first.
I have mentioned this many times before, but it really is my favorite time to read about: 1850-1899. Anything. Fiction, nonfiction, historical fantasy, horror, mysteries. I am not picky when it is set in this time period. I don’t even care where it is set if it is during this time. I love how this is the time when modernity was in its infancy. When scientific discoveries came fast and furious, and man was beginning to finally understand the natural world.
I like armchair travel to this time, more than to a specific place, but if I had to also pick a place, I would say I enjoy reading about the far east, in any time period. Again, I will read fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, etc... all comers.
Okay, now it is your turn.
Tell me about your favorite armchair travel reads.
