Terrell's Travel Reading Lists

I've been recommending and selling books to people for almost twenty years now, so I'm afraid I couldn't resist putting together some reading lists concerning my travel destinations. I've tried to stick mostly to literature I've actually read and guidebooks I've traveled with so you will get first-hand critiques. Don't see one of your favorites? Send me an email at books (at) terrelltravels.com and I'll consider it for addition. If you want to see what I'm reading right now, check my blog.
