Like movies and TV, books have a way of reaching into our subconcious and taking hold, influencing our decisions on everything from what to wear, what to eat, and yes, even where to go on vacation.
From lively photo books that perch on your coffee table, to guide books filled to the brim with tempting facts, books can be a major resource when it's time to plan the next excursion. Even fictional locations can swarm in our brains and make us recall a deep, dark need to lay back on the beach, explore a foreign city or snuggle up in a 5-star hotel.
According to Flavorwire, tales like R. Kikuo Johnson's Night Fisher and Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead are here for us to "find our intermittent vacation fantasies growing into full-blown obsessions."
Regardless of whether you're booking your flight today or simply have a bad case of wanderlust; whether Italy is your dream trip, or you fantasize about the Hollywood Hills, do you let books make your travel decisions for you? What are your great book locations to visit?
