No matter what time of the year it is, these three book picks will have you dreaming of all the places you can travel today, tomorrow or years to come.  Curling up with a great book is our definition of the perfect me-time, and there is no shortage of great reads out there.

The Cat who went to Paris 

Destination – Paris
