Hunchback of Notre Dame

I dove into this tome while riding the rails in Europe — its dense, entrancing story is perfect for those LONG rides and hanging in the train stations. Lurking near the venerable cathedral only enhances the experience.

Murder on the Orient Express

What better moment to indulge in this classic page-turner?

I, Rigoberta Menchu

A story guided by true events in the life of this Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Zorba the Greek

Check out both the book and movie. Though a bit cliché, the novel and film offer insight into the Greek way of life and glimpses of some tucked-away Cretan treasures.

A Woman Alone

Ladies globetrotting on their own in Turkey, China, Niger, Ireland, Russia, Belize… you name it, they’ve gone there.

"A delightfully testosterone-free collection… it would take no less than five hundred bearded, sensitive men to produce writing with this much insight." -Doug Lansky, author of Last Trout in Paris
