What I'm into right now: June is the beginning of summer & that means vacation! However, I know I never get to travel as much as I would like. That's why I turn to some of my all-time favorite books that have a strong sense of place. I can feel the salty breeze of the Cinque Terre when I read Beautiful Ruins or I can roam the gritty London streets in White Teeth. Wherever you want to go, past or present, near or far, there is a book to take you there!
