Apart from my obvious love of travel and admitted love of movies, I’m also a huge bookworm. Because I always seem to have my nose stuck in a book, and have grown interested in the lives of the authors who have written some of the most famous books in history, I’ve made a point to include their homes in my travel bucket list. Since none of the below mentioned authors should need any introduction from me, I’m going to stray from the norm (as far as my bucket list posts are concerned) and only include titles, locations, and photos for each.
