Knowing an area’s history can add exponentially to a trip, which is why Fresno makes her kids read the Horrible History books. Almost every location is the subject some fabulous historical fiction and non-fiction. Since we’re avid readers, Fresno and I decided that we would do a series where we review the books that have helped make our travels even more interesting.
I know y’all are big readers, too, and you’ve travelled places we’ve not yet gone. We’d love to hear your suggestions for books that are good pre-trip reading for specific locations. You can comment here, or shoot us an email at kate at fromfresnototimbuktu dot com.
First up: Naples, Italy Check back this weekend for my book suggestions to set the scene for your time in this beautiful, ugly, wonderful, frustrating city.
