Do you enjoy reading about exotic places, even if you can’t afford to go on vacation right now? Or, perhaps you’re looking for insider knowledge and recommendations for your next trip. Either way, you know that travel books can get expensive. Plus, unlike novels, travel books become dated and no longer useful after a few years. Fortunately, the advent of Amazon’s Kindle and other ebook readers has brought an avalanche of free (and cheap) books that you can read right on your computer. Below are just a few of the current travel titles offered on the Internet for free:
- 25 Language Phrasebook
- 151 Travel Tips
- Best USA Trips
- Moon Maya 2012: A Guide to Celebrations in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras
- Beginner’s Guide to Camping
- The Definitive London Travel Guide
- Amsterdam Travel Guide
- Boston Travel Guide
- Chicago Travel Guide
- Hawaii Travel Guide
- Fodor’s “1936…on the Continent”
- “Innocents Abroad” by Mark Twain (I love this book.)
- “Our National Parks” by John Muir
Keep in mind that free ebook offers change frequently. Make sure that the price says $0, particularly on the Amazon downloads before you click on “buy.” Don’t have a Kindle or other ebook reader? You can download a free version on your PC or MAC to read books on your computer.
