Site of the Week: Pack a Book

Pack a Book was a very clever idea for a web site. Many people don't want to read heavy non-fiction books on their holidays, but they like to immerse themselves in the culture of the country that they're visiting. Pack a Book makes it easier for people to do this. It provides lists of novels set in different countries. If you are going to Italy, for example, the web site has novels to choose from with a little bit of information about them.

This is also a good site if you just want to 'armchair travel'. You can choose a book to read set in the country that you want to 'visit'. You can also 'study' a book set in a particular country for a few weeks by subscribing to the newsletter and reading the suggested book.

There are also interesting blogs with reviews at the site.
