Guidebooks are great for logistics, but they don't convey the local character. What events shaped a city's past? What is it like to live there?
Destination Reads are stories—fiction and non-fiction—that help you get to know a city. We select books showing a unique side of the places we go.
Each city collection is curated by literary travelers and local authors, with final selections approved by our editorial team.
Subscribe to our monthly newsletter and we'll share literary city guides, interviews with nomadic readers and authors, book deals and more. We'll never share your email.
