Travel From Home: A List of Books That Will Transport You Around the World

*Updated May 2020

I realized long ago that one of the reasons I love reading so much is because it allows me to travel without having to even leave the house. Right now especially, when travel lovers are unable to explore physically, seeing the world through books is the perfect, simple escape that we can all enjoy. 

Here are a number of books that I’ve read and loved- each a vehicle of transportation to different locations throughout the world.

*Note- this is an ongoing list that will be updated from the top, monthly, starting with the Wilsons in Wanderland Book Club selection from the previous month.
I recommend that all book club members read books # 2 and 3 currently listed here, as- first of all, they are lovely– and secondly, author Chanel Cleeton has a highly-awaited, follow-up book coming out this June, 2020!
