Cover for the book "Here Comes the Sun"

Almost Like Being There

Fiction with a Strong Sense of Place

Maybe you’ve been itching to take a trip but don’t have the time or the funds; maybe you have a trip on the horizon but need a break from the day-to-day; or maybe you prefer the comfort of your own home or hometown, but love reading about far off places. Sometimes there’s nothing like fiction to paint such a clear picture of a place that it’s almost as good as traveling there yourself.

Make the Most of Winter

Books to help you survive (or even celebrate) the coldest season

After the friendly and familial reunions, comfort food, and celebrations at the end of the year, turning the corner into January can sometimes seem like a slide right into the darkest heart of winter.
