Adventurous Summer Reads for 2020–The Year of the Staycation

2020 does not look like the summer you’ll take a safari in Kenya, walk along the Great Wall of China, take the train up to Machu Picchu or admire the Taj Mahal.  Nor does it look like you’ll be taking a long car trip across the United States, Canada or Mexico, either. Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon will have to wait. For safety’s sake, we’re all taking staycations this year even if we originally had other plans.  

          Disappointing? Absolutely.

 Summer Reading is still on this year, though. If you can’t satisfy your wanderlust on an adventure of your own, here’s a way to join someone else’s. This reading list is a diverse gathering of fiction and non-fiction titles about discovery, adventures, and travel, not necessarily in that order.
