Travel Books Library

I love reading and books and if you are here, I hope you do too. I also enjoy good movies and documentaries, especially travel, adventure, sci-fi (time travel, space) and exploration related.

I am going to dedicate this entire page to films and books. This page is the largest online library of travel books and movies.

Travel Books Library

There are literally thousands of great books and movies that fall under the travel and adventure genre, and if time permits, do explore as many as you can, but for the practical purpose (thinking about adding real value to readers).

I am going to talk about and recommend my selection of the best “travel and adventure” books and movies. I hope, you enjoy this library as much I do. Occasionally, I will go on to explain a movie plot (for example, The Fountain and Space Travel) or start a discussion page on a great practical book such as Deep Survival by Laurence Gonzales.

But, for the most part, this page will look like a books and movies library. The ultimate library. As of today, we have over 300 titles.

Travel Books & Movies

If you want to join The Art of Travel Book & Movie Club, just drop us an email. We will share the best and most helpful travel books, free destination guides, movies, and documentaries. We also hold video discussions on a book or movie on our YouTube channel. We talk about the alternative endings, plot, inner meaning, lessons learned or extracted and much much more. (Just as you would do in real world in a real book club).

The best part is you can now participate by commenting and we will pick up some of the comments and discuss along with you in the next video. Or, you can make a video response and post it on your YouTube channel and we can talk back and forth. It’s a lot of fun. Happy reading! Happy watching! Happy Travels!
