To start off my Summer Reading List I have been making for myself, I wanted to tell you about this new book I have been reading.
The New York Times: Footsteps is a small collection of short geographical essays telling stories about different places in the world. A literary footstep-ing across the world. This book is based on a New York Times travel column, Footsteps and gives you insight to the locational muses of some of the world's famous writers.
It was a very well put together collection, and each story is written by someone who is walking the footsteps of a famous author. The essays are enticing with a bit of whimsical charm and some even hold a surprise or change-up. Each writer also contained their own writing style. Some were easy for me to get into while others I had to really focus to see the stories between the lines. But all were very fascinating and took me to another place where I could really imagine the life there and see why those famous writers let their imaginations take them away.
I was excited to read this as I have no major travel plans this summer, but now I can enjoy the world travels of others by reading in the comforts of my own home. And I highly recommend it to others as a fun guide to traveling the world or as a good read while relaxing on your favorite local beach!
