Vacation, anyone?

Book Blogger Hop

Every week Coffee Addicted Writer hosts the Book Blogger Hop. Participants answer a question and then visit other blogs of fellow participants to chime in on the discussion. This week's question is:

“Do you have a book with a location that you just HAD to visit after reading the book?”

My answer:

I've never visited a location because of a book, but the two places I wish I could visit are:

1.  Israel - because I would like to experience the places of the Bible
2.  Emily Dickinson's House in Amherst, Massachusetts - because I'm a huge Emily Dickinson fan.

I think it's neat when books are set in cities that I have visited. I always find myself comparing the setting of the book to the real place.  I once enjoyed reading book set on Anna Maria Island, Florida, which a beach community about 25 minutes from where I live. Wish I could remember the name of the book! LOL.

What about you?


  1. That is true about reading about places where you know the setting. I enjoy comparing it to the real place too.

    ENJOY your weekend, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy Hopping!!

  2. Hi Jolene! Thanks for stopping by Reading in Texas.

    > because I would like to experience the places of the Bible

    Ummm... I'd classify this as wanting to visit a place after reading the book!

    Our family spent 16 years in Florida (Tallahassee and Orlando) before moving to Texas. And, would you believe that we never visited the Keys or the West coast beaches? I think I need to visit Florida again as a tourist.
