Off the Beaten Page: The Best Trips for Lit Lovers, Book Lovers, and Girls on Getaways

Terri Peterson Smith
Books + Travel= Nirvana! Avid readers travel to quaint towns, dingy back streets, or breathtaking mountain tops every time they pick up a book. What if you actually went to the setting of the books you enjoy?
Author, Terri Peterson Smith’s non-fiction book, Off the Beaten Page: The Best Trips for Lit Lovers, Book Clubs, and Girls on Getaways, invites us on several literary journeys.
Peterson Smith guides you through the basics, from choosing the group members wisely to budgets and the logistics of travel arrangements. Some of the book based excursions are day trips while others are more ambitious involving cross country plane trips. The chapters are well organized featuring 15 cities and numerous book choices, restaurants, hotels, and itineraries.
This book is well written, creative, and makes me want to “hit the road!”
