    Default Favorite kinds of travel books?

    I LOVE Lonely Planet. Something about it is just really helpful. I also use Frommer's.

    Ha, I opened up this thread to say I love Lonely Planet as well.

    I've also noticed a new travel book that looks like a little black sketch book. I can't think of its name, but it's cute and doesn't look touristy.

    I have used Frommer's in the past, but now I use whatever I find at my AAA office. I get a pretty good discount on books there, and I get maps for free from the office.

    Default Travel Fiction Rules

    I love to read fiction set in my travel location. Autobiographical stuff works for me too. I want to get into someones mind that was perhaps living there at a certain time, and learn about the culture and history that way. Much better than travel guides. This site recommends books for locations this way. TrekLit - Travel Literature Book Club

    I liked timeline, by Crichton. I have not read much time travel, but will look at the library for some of the selections mentioned!

    I like Lonely Plane, but for the relaxation I preffer detective stories
    These icons are the best!

    Default Recommendations

    I can really recommend Make the Most of Your Time on Earth: a Rough Guide to the World by Rough Guides. It's got stunning photography, and a romantic style of writing that will whet anyone's appetite for travel. I'd be interested to read anyone else's travel book reviews too!

    So many good travel books out there... for something funny, I like J Maarten Troost, his titles are a little crazy: Sex Lives of Cannibals, Getting Stoned with Savages. Writes about life in tropical places.

    For the lovely Italian life, nothing is better than A Year in Provence, by Peter Mayle.

    A classic writer is Paul Bowles, though I find his work pretty ethnocentric.
    I havent been everywhere, but its on my list. Susan Sontag
