Bookish Travels: Walking Through Adventure

Traveling to faraway places is always wonderful.  Imagine if while you're traveling you have a handy guide to the area and the settings of beloved books.  You can mark literary landmarks on your map and physically immerse yourself in the places your beloved characters have been. Not all of these are in print, but you can easily get them via Interlibrary Loan or buy them used on
