BookCities helps you find good reads for your travels.

Fiction is a great way to learn about local places and culture, and local street-wisdom helps you enjoy books set there. BookCities is a web app that helps you find great books to gear you up for a new city or help you feel out new destinations for travel.

For example, what better to read in Paris than A Moveable Feast? Your perspective on Dublin would be so much better after reading Dubliners. You can seek out some Richard Brautigan for your flight to San Francisco, and ride Tokyo's Metro with a Haruki Murakami novel.

Whether you are visiting a new city or staying home, BookCities also helps you find interesting literary events and author speaking engagements. The editors of site will also post regular features on some of the best books in select cities.
