It's already August, but it's not too late for a summer getaway!
We travel for fun, adventure, relaxation, and to escape our routine. Some people enjoy travelling to places they've never been before, while others prefer their annual trek to the same place they've been vacationing for years. Some prefer the hustle and bustle of cities, while others prefer the solitude of beaches, mountains, or forests. Wherever you go and however you get there, a good vacation read is part of any enjoyable trip! For some of us, catching up on our reading is what vacation is all about!
