You probably didn't start traveling after you started a family - most likely you did some traveling with your parents, or in school - so while you're reading all of the 'how to' guides for travel 2.0, don't forget to stock up on a few good reads that inspire you (as an adult) about the places you're going.  Or about the places that you go to all the time.  Your kids will pick up on your enthusiasm.

For me, reading a lot, for long periods of time, hasn't always been possible lately, but I still thumb through and would put John McPhee's Annals of the Former World on any cross-US roadtrip list. (it's really heavy though - not great for backpacking).  Much the same with David Quammen's books that merge travel and discovery with biodiversity.  And short stories from various places that reveal a different religion, culture, or lifestyle are always on my bookshelf.  So are various books about myths and folklore from everywhere we go, and want to go.

So my reading lists and reviews will be eclectic, to say the least.  You've been warned.
