My Bookshelf

Howdy! I have compiled a brief list of some of my favorite books - by category. All of these links head to Amazon where you can get important details to search for these books at your local library or book store. Any item purchased through Amazon resulting in a small commission only contributes to the hosting/maintenance of this webpage/domain or to purchasing more travel books. Know of a good book? I'm always looking for recommendations!
