For all its problems, 2009 was a great year for readers who love to travel. Dozens of new books hit the shelves over the last 12 months practically tailor-made for the explorer inside of us. Rory MacLean at the Guardian UK has taken it upon himself to assemble a list of books that should be on every nightstand of those who have luggage in their closets or backpacks in the hall – of those who appreciate the art of travel. Take a look at his list and think about these for your inner armchair-traveler.
Also, the folks at World Hum have given us their own list for the best of 2009. which I like as well.
