Travel the World!
One of the things I’ve always loved about books and reading is how you can explore places you’ll never actually visit; you can travel the world without leaving your favorite chair.
On my Facebook author page, I asked this question: If you were transported to the setting of the book you’re currently reading, where would you be?
I just love the range of responses! Don’t you?
