Every year I make a resolution to myself to read more books about travel.  And with all that wasted time waiting in airports, sitting on trains, planes, and buses, and other precious in-between moments on the road, we may as well make the most of it by picking up a few books about traveling.  And if reading a book fuels the wanderlust for another destination, all the better!
