TripFiction – so much more than a database and book reviews
TripFiction was launched a few years ago to provide an easily searchable database of books with a strong sense of place and to help the reader see a location through an author’s eyes. How much more enjoyable is a holiday if you’re immersed in a book where the characters are walking the same streets as you and you’re sharing the same history and food? Or the vicarious sense of travel you get from reading a book in the comfort of your armchair at home? Most have reviews that rate each book by the strength of location and content and new books and reviews are being added to the database every day.
But did you know that TripFiction offers much much more that will help bring the world of books and travel to colourful life? The vibrant and hugely varied blog is approaching the significant landmark of 1,000 posts and here you’ll find the following types of content to enrich your reading pleasure:
#TalkingLocationWith – articles where authors give the reader an insight into the research they undertook for a book’s destination, the characters they may have met there, the writing process and even some tips on best places to stay, eat, and visit when you find yourself walking in the author’s footsteps:
#TFBookClub – an active TripFiction Book Club where every couple of months members can win a copy of a book with a strong sense of place. Members’ comments, author insights and additional blog posts about the destination transport the reader to another place.
‘Great books set in’ and ‘Classic reads’ series – to point you in the direction of highly rated and interesting books set in the location you’re travelling to.
General interest topics – shining a light on the world of publishing and on interesting destinations. There are some wonderful articles about books and travel in the TripFiction blog so bookmark the blog and don’t forget to tell all your friends and contacts how TripFiction should be their first port of call for books with a strong sense of place, helping the reader see a location through an author’s eyes – and so much more.
