The Travelling Book Bag

Today’s post will be a quick one cos I’m off exploring beautiful Paris but I’m really trying to stick to a regular posting schedule for you guys! Tuesdays are my book days. I don’t leave the house without a book. Do you? Sometimes I carry three or four. But I’m working on that. I live and breathe books, basically. Today I got to finally go to Shakespeare and Company after many years of waiting! It did not disappoint. I wanted to buy every single book. So I settled for five.

Below I have mixed together two of my favourite things: books and travel. Here is a list of books about travel. Or about a city. They’re books that focus on travelling within the plot, as part of a theme, or just in the words they say, they make you feel part of the world they’re describing. Completely immersed. Whether it’s Patti Smith’s love letter to New York or the powerful revolution in Animal Farm and their creation of a new home. Enjoy!
