Books that inspire you to travel

As I enjoy reading & travelling I thought I might double the enjoyment by finding some books to insire my travels. I don't mean the trusty Lonely Planet or Footprint guide, but rather a novel or travel account that will let you can soak up the atmosphere before you even reach the airport, or even add a little spice to the experience while you are there.

On my wish list for places to visit in 2008 are Rome (taking my 11 year old son there for a long weekend), Lebanon (friend moving there soon), Ethiopia (friends who do aid work may be sent there) and Malaysia (possible family holiday this summer).

Travel Books and reading material encourages the travellers to select between destinations and spend a splendid holiday trip. I took a cheap flight to New Zealand last year, and my inspiration to travel to this Oceania paradise was a book which described New Zealand quite perfectly to me.
