The list is organized thematically, and the travel section—way down at the bottom—includes World Hum favorites by Mark Twain, Jan Morris, Jonathan Raban and the late Patrick Leigh Fermor. A number of travel-themed titles have also found their way into the other sections, and the whole list is worth a read. (Via @legalnomads)

Really surprised that I had only read 3 books on the list. I might need to revamp my summer reading list. I would add, Social Contract, by Rousseau.

For an excellent read, everyone in the world should read: 100 Years of Solitude.

I drove from the UK to Hungary where I now am an expat. It was a long drive and whenever I stopped driving for a break I reached for this book and felt reluctant to start driving again.

If you haven’t read it, then take the time to do so.

Happy Travels Everyone.
