A Fictional Vacation

John Lubbock quote

Not everyone has a vacation scheduled for this summer. Maybe it’s due to a shortage of time or money or both. But the lack of vacation doesn’t mean you can’t do some traveling. Books are one of my favorite ways to travel. You can go a lot farther for a lot less money.

Some of my favorite book destinations have been Hogwarts, Alagaësia, and Ravka. Forks, Panem, and Dauntless headquarters. Arrakis and New Beijing. And yes, for most of those, I’m very glad I was only a visitor.

What are your favorite book destinations? What book destinations would you like to visit?

  1. Hogwarts is definitely up there on my list of destinations. Whenever I’m really in need of a mental break, I pick up “Draco Malfoy the Amazing Bouncing Rat”. It’s a ridiculous fanfiction that I read back in high school that I loved so much I had it printed out and bound. Other holiday destinations … love me some Xanth … Sword of Truth world is pretty fun …
