I think I am single-handedly keeping Amazon and my local bookseller in business this summer. I have been plowing through at least a book a weekend, and recently I’ve been on a Nantucket jag. Obviously I enjoy reading about summer, and especially in places I know (like Martha’s Vineyard). I haven’t been to Nantucket since college, but I’m loving reading about the island because I’m heading there in August to visit some friends and I can’t wait to actually visit the places I’m reading about.

What about you? Do you like reading about placing you’re visiting, or is the unknown just as fun?
