    I've been voraciously reading Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts the last few days. Wow, what a book.

    I wanted to go to India before, now I'm dying to go.

    Suitcaseofbks - if you do go to Corfu, then try and get to Paxos - it's just a ferry ride away. You won't be disappointed. Mills & Boon are a series of short romance books that have been around since the 1930's, all very predictable plots and not exactly literary classics haha. Hence I've never read one before this.

    hen I was in Bath earlier this year I happened to be reading Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey (purely by coincidence, although I'd read it before), which is mostly set there. I adore Jane Austen's books so I geeked out a bit whenever I walked down one of the streets that was mentioned in the book, or when I went to the Assembly Rooms. The book wasn't the only reason I wanted to go to Bath, but it was certainly part of the appeal.

    Do you have a particular country's history that you favor and a book you'd recommend?

    I really want to visit the Aquitaine region of France and the tombs of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II (of England) at Abbey Fontevraud thanks to Sharon Kay Penman's historical fiction books (Goodreads link). I highly recommend them if you're interested in British medieval history! The first book in the series is When Christ and His Saints Slept, and I think it's my favorite too.

    I've never travelled anywhere just because of a book, but always try to read a book that is set in the destination I visit, preferably a novel. I find it fun to recognize the street names I walk in and think "oh, that's where character X walked too" :-)
    I like to read novels about a country's history too.
