Many of the historical books I’ve read are set in Europe, particularly England. A large part of my focus of my English minor (and English teaching degree) was focused on British literature (and American). I discovered some books that will stick with me for the rest of my life, such as Remains of the Day, which I still own all these years later. The Secret Garden is perhaps the first book I truly remember peaking my interest and realizing how different the British lifestyle is – or just the European lifestyle in general.
I’d also like to visit Venice. I’ve read several books set in this beautiful city, as well as a few historical period movies.
How awesome would it be to just take a book vacation, visiting all those spots from great books along the way?
