On location with a book – where do you travel to when you read?

We love reading and travelling and we want to ask you what places you like to read about when you delve into a novel. Do you like to visit a country you are not likely to go to such as exotic Thailand or war-torn Afghanistan? Or do you prefer to be able to spend time in the places which inspire you  – Paris, Madrid or some other popular ‘ tourist’ spot.

Where is your favourite book set? How does it evoke the setting? Authors – what makes your setting special to you? We want to hear from people who read and people who write and for you to tell us about your book and why your setting matters. Send pictures so we can put you on the booktrail map and let others see the special places and local highlights that outsiders may not know of.

Send brief details of your book along with a few pics telling us why your setting matters and we will feature them on this blog – we want to hear about your booktrails! and share them with everyone here.

  1. The only one I’ve been to is bali after eat pray love but unfortunately didn’t get to stay as long as she did. I wish I could have though! 🙂

    1. Wow we’re jealous here! Ooh do you have any pictures from your time there? Fancy posting your views here on the booktrail? We’d love to hear your experience of the book on location

      1. Didn’t manage to follow all the places in the book except to go through villages on bicycle. It’s not as romantic as it seemed to be, at least for me though! Haha..:)
