Where in the World is…Buzzreads?
I don’t know about you, Buzzreaders, but I’m in the mood to do a bit of traveling. It’s been a long, cold winter (Ok, really winter was mild this year, but it’s definitely been LONG!) and I’m ready to hit the road. But, alas, the budget (and the time off) is simply not there for me. So instead, I’m choosing a budget-friendly approach and doing some Armchair Travel to satisfy my Wanderlust!
This idea was actually inspired by an interesting Tailored Titles request I filled recently. If you need some new reading material, you might want to fill out one of these nifty surveys and our reading experts will hand pick a list of materials for you!
