Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not gonna lie, this is a pretty tough topic for me. A lot of the real locations in books that I’ve read that are the most majestic, I’ve already been to.
