Hey there and welcome to Go Girl Magazine’s new reviews section!! We’ll be kicking it off this week with several brand new reviews of recently released travel books. Stayed tuned over the next few days to hear more about Travelers’ Tales annual anthology, The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2010, travel writer and guidebook author Fran Gendlin‘s recent title, Paris, Moi and the Gang: A Memoir…of Sorts, and playwright Brooke Berman‘s new non-fiction release, No Place Like Home: A Memoir in 39 Apartments.
Our reviews section is also always on the look out for other blogs and websites with awesome travel-related content. On the list this week are AbeBooks recent feature on “Tantalizing Travelogues” and scrumptious food blog My Morning Chocolate‘s recent post, “What’s Your Favorite Road Trip Food?.” Check out the first for a little background on the history of travel writing, and the second to find out what foods famous travel writers like Bruce Chatwin and Jack Kerouac munched on while on the go.
So mix yourself some gorp (good old raisins and peanuts!), head to your local library for a copy of something by Bill Bryson, Herman Melville, or even Homer (AbeBooks dates his 8th century BC epic The Odyssey as one of the earliest examples of travel lit.) and enjoy settling in to the reviews section! Stayed tuned for new updates, and send any questions or comments our way at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love to hear from you, and we hope to see you often!
