BiblioTravel entry

I’ve added Dark Star Safari to BiblioTravel – this book took me about 6 months to read, but it was worth it (good preparation for my trip, even though I’m only visiting one country in Africa)!

Here’s an excerpt from my entry:

… Theroux’s journey takes him from the top of Africa to the southernmost tip. As he explores eastern Africa (mainly by bus, car, or train) he tries to offer readers a view of the continent that is different from what we are likely to find in newspaper headlines.

Many thanks to James Schellenberg for helping me to get started with this blog! James co-created BiblioTravel with me a few years ago, and he continues to amaze me with the energy he puts into keeping the site up-to-date and interesting…

BiblioTravel is an ideal site to check out if you are planning to travel this summer. You can get ideas for books to take along with you, or find suggestions for what to read to prepare you for your destination.
