Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the
fabulous ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s part of the magic of books: they take you places that you’ve never been. Or they show you a new angle on a place that you have visited. Either way you want to go. Or go back. And that was the homework assignment for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Places Books Have Made Us Want to Visit.
