Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain:

A transatlantic flight provided the perfect opportunity for me to read The Magic Mountain. In a sanatorium, the protagonist creates his universe around his apartment. It has nothing to do with travel at all, but returning to a book that seemed so rooted in one location was incredibly reassuring. That’s why, as the tale develops, he keeps connecting himself to the mountain and he’s surrounded by.

After reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Ford Prefect sets off a voyage through space. Arthur Dent watches in horror as the planet Earth is leveled to make way for a galactic superhighway. While I was in London, I read it. They were both excellent. Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s “The Shadow of the Wind” Throughout this work, Daniel, the son of a book dealer, is the main character.

When I’m on the road, I enjoy  Travelling in Reading.The protagonist takes a journey as part of the plot. The kids who aren’t The Chosen Ones are the focus of this novel.

At some point, Quentin’s long-term love interest, Margo, bursts in through his window and begs for his assistance in exacting vengeance on him.
