I am a lover of travel and a lover of great books - so my greatest joy is to combine the two. Packabook
helps travelers find books set in the place they are traveling to. Novels and travelogues etc are categorized by country, making it easy to search for a book set in your destination.
And if you are looking for a bit more discussion, reviews and travel tips then the Packabook Blog
is the places to visit.
If I am traveling somewhere, I like to be armed with novels set in the place I am going, so that when I am there I can have a much deeper relationship with the place itself. Reading fiction brings that place and its history alive in a way that no guide book can.
And of course, if you have no travel plans on the agenda, reading a book set in a wonderful place can certainly help you feel as if you have just visited the place itself. Try reading a book set on an exotic Greek island and see what I mean! Packabook
categorizes fiction into the countries in which the books are set, and then explores how well each novel relates to its location. It's an opportunity to take a virtual holiday, and live for a time in another place.
