Sometimes the ability to travel abroad is just not possible. If health issues, budgetary concerns, work obligations or family responsibilities are preventing you from traveling to far away places, there’s always a second option: Pick up a good book!
Books allow you to experience the culture, customs and traditions of foreign lands right at home. Here are some novels to enjoy during those quiet moments away from kids that will sweep you away to another place, and in some cases, another time. No need for a passport or foreign currency, just grab your e-reader, or take a trip to your nearest public library or bookstore.
