Books That Let You Time Travel

Travel Time

It’s been said that reading a great book is the cheapest and fastest way to travel around the world. We love visiting another country via the pages of a book as much as the next reader. Books allow us to travel in so many ways a passport never could. Our personal favorite? Time travel. You can crack open a book and be transported to Ancient Egypt, to 1920s Chicago, to Medieval Europe … the list goes on and on. Here we’ve assembled a few of our favorite time travel books that transport you to another age, but also books where the characters themselves soar through time to explore new worlds. From all of us at Read It Forward: safe travels!
