I love books. Whether it’s fiction or nonfiction, how-to or RV travel, hardback, paperback, Kindle, or audiobooks, I’m always on the lookout for great books to add to my road trip reading list.
This morning, I spent some quality time on Amazon, because I want a few new books that will not only keep me entertained on the road, but books that would inspire me with ideas about new places to visit.
Here are three of the books I found. Let me know if you have titles I should add!
This first book, 1000 Places to See Before You Die, includes several out-of-the-way suggestions I never would have thought of visiting, and also includes information on selected National Parks and campgrounds. With a little planning, I can cover several of these on each road trip!
If you’re crazy about stargazing while camping in your travel trailer, you might pick up a copy of Anton’s Night Sky guide 2013. It’s only $2.99, and Anton lets you know when to look for planets, shooting stars, eclipses, stars, the moon phases as well as detailing other night sky events. The guide also lets you know which events are predicted to be the most spectacular, and which ones aren’t worth losing sleep over.
And if you want to virtually visit places few people will ever go, you can follow scientist and author Bill Streever as he leads readers across glaciers on a search for the extreme, “cold.” In July he finds it while taking a dip in a 35-degree Arctic swimming hole; in September while excavating our planet’s ancient and not so ancient ice ages; and in October while exploring hibernation habits in animals, from humans to wood frogs to bears.
Now, I’m going to go take a peek at the fiction bestsellers and see what I might want to hear when I head out in my Airstream this weekend. Send me your suggestions!
