L'Appart by David Leibovitz

The newest chapter of expatriate and acclaimed cook David Lebovitz’s life in Paris, complete with recipes! “David captures the torturous travails of apartment renovation in the City of Light with humor and acumen. ‘Pas de problème,’ he’s told time and again as the renovation derails. He is as alert to details of parquet and working with a notaire as he is with recipes for tarte tatin and quiche, both included here. This memoir brings fans of David even closer to the happy life he’s built for himself in Paris.” —Jacques Pepin

Best Women's Travel Writing Vol 11 ed. by Lavinia Spalding

While there are definitely many examples of the joy of travel to be found here, there are also occasions of suffering and confusion. From the harsh reality of encountering Syrian refugees whilst on vacation in the Greek isles, to the isolation of not knowing the language in a foreign country, the raw experiences shared here are brave and important and make for a truly inspiring read. - Jade

Blue Latitudes by Tony Horwitz

A customer recommended this book to me, and I’m so glad she did! Horwitz and his wisecracking, alcoholic friend follow the same course as the legendary sailor Captain James Cook. Horwitz’s journey helps him strike a balance between admiration for Cook’s achievements, and an acknowledgement of the irreversible catastrophes he unintentionally wrought on the native cultures he encountered whilst circumnavigating the globe. - Jade

Jungle of Stone by William Carlsen

In 1839, John Stephens and Frederick Catherwood trudged into the Guatemalan jungle in search of some rumored rocks that they had heard might be of interest. What they found forever changed Western understanding of the evolution of civilization. Carlsen weaves the two explorers’ life stories into his telling of how Stephens and Catherwood defied both the unforgiving Central American jungle and the xenophobic society of their time to expose the grandeur and remarkable engineering of the Mayas. - Jade

The New York Times: Footsteps by The New York Times

Each of these essays explores a different area—from San Francisco to Chile—through the lens of a literary figure. One author wandered Lake Geneva, following the path of Lord Byron and company, another road-tripped to learn about Nabokov’s inspiration for Lolita. Truly good travel writing mixed with literary musings—what could be better? - Jax

All Over the Place by Geraldine DeRuiter

Geraldine DeRuiter is the first to tell you this is not your normal travel writing book. You won’t get great advice or learn interesting or relevant facts about the places she’s been. You will, however, get story after story of escapades with friends, life lessons, a weird family, and a love that, if you’re lucky, will remind you of your own. I hadn’t read DeRuiter’s renowned blog Everywhereist before, but you can bet I will now. - Jocelyn
