The Good:A Traveler’s Library is an interesting twist on the travel blog theme. Instead of limiting their reviews to travel books, the author and guest posters review books and movies that are set in travel destinations. New Book Review and Interview, for instance, is about Cemetery of Dreams, a self-published historical novel set in Iran. In the course of the interview with author, S. Mostofi, we learned enough about Iran and Iranian culture in 5 minutes to make us feel like we were sitting in a café in Tehran, listening in on a conversation. Bizbee, Arizona has never been high on our list of must-see destinations, but after reading the review of Going Back to Bizbee AZ, we felt like that was our loss.
The Bad:As readers, we loved A Traveler’s Library. As travel blog reviewers, we have to say it’s not really a travel blog. We had to scroll far down her “Favorite Links” page to find any travel sites and blogs. Although there are great travel books in her extensive library, we found them a little hard to find. Some of them are in her “Travel” category, while others are not. Nonetheless, if you enjoy reading books, A Traveler’s Library is for you.
