Armchair travel more your style - I've got you covered there as well! It all started in 2019 as we embarked in the pages of "Molokai". Since then we've traveled to India, Iceland, Cuba, Russia, Italy and The Netherlands.
Being an avid reader and traveler my entire life - I’ve come to realize how closely the two are intertwined. Growing up in rural Iowa, books transported me to exotic locales before I had even flown on a plane or been outside the U.S..
I can’t help but think my love of reading helped inspire my passion for travel and led me to working in the travel industry!
My reading style is constantly changing; I came of age with Judy Blume, V.C. Andrews and Stephen King. Next came my love of mysteries and legal thrillers; fueled by John Grisham, Scott Turrow and David Baldacci. The last few years - historical fiction is my favorite genre! In between I’ve enjoyed some classics, survived an expedition with Sacajawea, endured a Russian winter with Anna Karenina, traveled back in time with Claire and Jamie (any Outlander fans out there?!), and cried through Nicholas Sparks and Jo-Jo Moyes books!
Join our book club!
Join us as we travel from South Korea to Japan through the pages of our latest read! This is Min Jin Lee's critically acclaimed debut novel.
"Pachinko" has been on my reading radar for a couple years and I'm excited to travel these pages with you. Japan is on my bucket list - for now I'll savor this armchair journey. I'd love your feedback about "Pachinko" in our Travel by Kris Book Club Facebook group. We'll have our chat in May. Hope you enjoy our latest read and happy spring travel friends!
In the Travel by Kris Book Club I hope with our book choices we are even more inspired to travel, "meet" others different from ourselves and learn about various cultures! We'll be focusing on fiction books where the destination plays a big part in the story. Maybe it will even influence where you vacation next!
Please know you're welcome in this group! It's all about fun, connecting and sharing our love of travel and books! There won't be any shaming if you don't read one of the books. ;)
