Road Works is a blog dedicated to providing book information suitable for travel. I found when traveling that the experience is enriched enormously if I read books–fiction and nonfiction–set in the geographical area. In fall 2011, when starting this blog, I focused on travel in France and Italy primarily as I lived in these countries. As this blog has evolved, I found that it’s intermittent. In 2011-2012, I lived away from home the entire year; since then, I travel when the opportunity arises–which I try to do as often as possible. And I’m always on the look out for good reads set in specific locations with stories that help illuminate the settings. Good travels and better reading!
