The City and the Book

Are you going to visit a city and want to read a book set there? Something to give you a feel, a taste, a sense of the place?

Or perhaps you loved a city you visited so much that you want to recapture the feeling it gave you?

This is a group where you can get tips and suggestions about what books to read about the cities you have visited or intend to visit.

And if you've visited a city, or live there, and read a great book that really captured that city for you - tell the rest of us!
