Nick Schenkel's Book Reviews on WBAA



Traveling books are among the most popular checked out of public libraries, and today's books are unique variations on the normal "where to go and eat" guides. Escape London is for the London traveler or native, looking for quainter locations outside the busy city. The Rough Guide to Vintage London explores the alternative spots within the city, alive with food, fashion, and culture. The combination of these books cover the traveling needs for any tourist.  West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
