Best Books I have Read on my Travels, Part 1. The thirsty demand for book recommendations is part-and-parcel of long term travel.
While iPods and laptops are great time-wasters on an endless bus journey, nothing satisfies like the pages of a good book. When I travel, I try and limit my reading to non-fiction. After all, to travel for travel itself is so fundamentally indulgent that the least I can do is try and learn as I go! Most of the books I buy or trade are therefore non-fiction, but I’ve been handed some great fiction to read during my journey and have included those as well. The Online Books Page.
