Reading Your Destination

Before we know it, summertime will be here and some of us will be taking off to other places on our vacations.  Maybe to another continent , maybe to somewhere else in the United States or maybe  to a beach closer to home.  Wherever you might be going –  why not get in the mood with a book whose setting is the place to where you are headed?

Here are some suggestions for books that take place in a few destinations far and wide.  If your vacation spot isn’t mentioned here, come into the library and ask a librarian to suggest some books especially for wherever your fancy is taking you.  And if you’re staying home, come in anyway and find a book that can take you anywhere you wish!
