Have Book – Will Travel to a Place You Want to Visit: Amazing Read Challenge Week 2

amazing read graphicThis week on the Amazing Read challenge we have the chance to read about a place we want to visit.  You could, for example, pick up a travel guide for a place you plan to visit, grab a cookbook featuring regional dishes, read a fiction or non-fiction title with an interesting setting, or follow your favorite blogger who lives in a cool place (I’m partial to an interior design blogger who lives in London).   For me I like to learn as much about the journey as the destination, so below I’ve listed a few titles for readers of all ages that feature interesting settings but which also focus on journeys.  This week I’ll be reading Better Nate Than Ever by Tim Federle (New York, New York!).   We’d love to hear what you’re reading, so consider sharing with us through your Summer Reading Program log, by commenting on this post, or on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.
