It's time to pack your backpacks, weekenders, totes, and carry-ons for holiday travel, making room for gifts and extra sweaters and probably some snacks. But once you factor in the reality of layovers, traffic, train delays, and long uninterrupted stretches of playing the waiting game, you're going to also need to find room for a book to keep you company!
Need a recommendation? Look no further than this list of all the novels, memoirs ,and otherwise food-themed books our staff loves. So swing by the your local bookstore, lean your seat way back (if the person behind you allows), and read on. Happy Turkey Travel!
