Four books that will inspire you to travel the world

There’s truly nothing like travel when it comes to gaining perspective and exposing yourself to other cultures. To get you in the adventuring mood, we asked Amazon Senior Editor Chris Schlep to help us come up with a list of books that transport readers to another time and place. Below, see his list of four books that will inspire you to travel around the world.

ITALY: Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

This book by the popular author Jess Walters tells a love story that begins on the Italian Coast in the early 60s and eventually appears on the screen in Hollywood. As the settings shift from Italy to Edinburgh to Los Angeles, you will find yourself longing to go as well. Buy it on Amazon. Price: $28.90

SEATTLE: Where You’d Go, Bernadette? by Maria Sample

Maria Sample’s first novel is not exactly a love story to Seattle, but if you read it, you just might want to come here to see if people are really as self-involved as the characters in her book. What really shines through is the strange storytelling and the laughs. Buy it on Amazon. Price: $26.60.

ENGLAND: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

You can’t travel to Thomas Cromwell’s England without a time machine, but reading Hilary Mantel’s prize-winning novel is the next best thing. It will make you long to see the ancient buildings and green grass of the English countryside, much of which is still there. Buy it on Amazon. Price: $ 25.10

NANTUCKET: Here’s to Us by Eli Hildebrand

Eli Hildebrand has built a writing career out of writing about her hometown island of Nantucket. Her latest is Here’s to Us, which, perhaps not surprisingly, is a great beach read. Buy it on Amazon. Price: $ 30.80

21. Whose book has been made into a film according to the text?

A. Hilary Mantel’s. B. Jess Walter’s. C. Maria Semple’s. D. Elin Hilderbrand’s.

22. What is the feature of Where You’d Go, Bernadette?

A. Its low price. B. Its characters. C. Its storyline and humor. D. Its content about love.

23. What does the book Wolf Hall inspire you to do?

A. Go to beach. B. Know about the foreign culture.

C. Appreciate the English countryside. D. Experience the joy and sadness of the self-involved.

B

At 23, my career got going. I was midway through a master’s degree and had been hired as a part-time reporter for a finance website. I got a great one-month review and my boss asked if I was interested in staying with the company after graduation.

However, balancing graduate studies with work was challenging. To deal with it, I checked my real self at my office door. I came in to work, greeted my colleagues and listened more than I contributed in each morning meeting. The small team I worked with often seemed busy, so rather than giving ideas that might get turned down, I stayed back.

After four months, my boss called me into his office. The meeting was going well until he told me that despite the great work I had produced, the team had held a meeting and decided, “We don’t think it’s the right fit.”

I must have looked confused. “You’re ambitious, intelligent and will be very successful,” my boss said. “But you haven’t made enough of an effort to join the team. You lost the enthusiasm you showed in your interview. That won’t work long term, and if I could give you one piece of advice, it would be to let your guard down. Don’t leave before you leave.”

I couldn’t believe that performing well at my job wasn’t enough to keep it. But I knew my boss was right. They knew when they hired me that I had no experience in finance reporting, yet they took a chance on me. In meetings I usually contributed last, after I had heard everyone else’s suggestions. I did it to show that I was a listener, but also to hide my fears. They had liked the person who walked into the interview, and they didn’t respect me when I hid that person from them. I learned the hard way that this isn’t the way to achieve your goals.
