The World Is Your Oyster, and Travel Books Are the Pearls!

By Beth Clark • June 11, 2018

You Breathe, Therefore You Travel

As voracious readers and impassioned travelers ourselves, we get that wanderlust is real. Reading and traveling expand your world and fuel your sense of wonder, and ThriftBooks makes more of both possible by saving you money on the books that inspire you to go places and help you get there. (More $$$ for plane tickets!)

Need Destination Inspiration?

The biggest challenge with the world being your oyster is that it's a BIG oyster. With all of the possible destinations out there, how do you choose? By reading about the ones that pique your curiosity and excite you, of course! If that's still too vague, travel writers, experts, and organizations like NatGeo can be your new best friend. Here are some to get you started:

Why We Travel (and Why We Need to)

There are hundreds of great books on where to travel and guides on how to travel, but comparatively few about why. What is it we're seeking that compels us to endure 14-hour flights crammed in seats next to someone with stinky feet?

Uniquely USA Travel

From coast-to-coast and border-to-border (including the outliers), the US would take decades to explore. With these books, you'll have a running head start, plus learn some cool facts about that you probably didn't know.

Traveling with Kids (and Babies)

Traveling with littles can be challenging, but it's so worth it, and it builds character! Whether it's yours or theirs being built depends entirely on the circumstances, but hey, the trials and tribulations make for funny stories later on (usually).

For the Kids While You're Traveling

ThriftBooks has hundreds of children's stories about traveling, and a giant selection of activity books for kids on the go, including:

Books for the Soloists, Budget-Savvy, Minimalists, and Vegans

ThriftBooks also has an impressive array of travel-related books that go well beyond those four categories, but in the interest of keeping this short, whoever you are, whatever you're looking for, a quick search will help you find it (even you, not-so-mainstream readers).

And Last But Not Least…

A search of the words "travel guide" yields over 4,000 in stock results...too many to list here, but their absence doesn't make them less essential. Ditto with the 1,500+ language books that include Chinese, English, Hindustani, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Portuguese, and French. Learning to communicate in foreign countries always makes for a smoother and more enriching travel experience, so with that, buon viaggio, Gute Reise, and tenha uma boa viagem!
