Books to read while traveling

Reading is the most efficient way to pass time while traveling. No matter how long it takes to reach your destination, you will never get bored with a book as a travel companion. Long-distance journeys provide ample time for reading, much more than one finds in other usual days of life and reading for long gives one an immense joy that is incomparable.  
Here are 5 of the best books to read during travel. Some are life-changing books, others are simply inspiring to make your journey lighter and stress-free.  

The Lord of the Rings  

The Lord of the Rings, an epic high-fantasy novel written by English author and scholar J. R. R. Tolkien; is a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 fantasy novel The Hobbit. Itis one of the top 10 best-selling books ever written, with over 150 million copies sold as of 2007. Over the course of a year from 29 July 1954 to 20 October 1955, The Lord of the Rings was published in three volumes. 

This classic wanderlust book is so pleasant to read while traveling. Reading the story of an epic journey will make you more excited to travel every day and brace all adventures in life. It is a really long book so you can be sure you won't run out of things to read right away and this is definitely perfect for a more relaxing journey.

Some things just become famous because they are simply really, really good like The Little Prince. This book is not really a children's book but a children's adventure book for adults. An adult should read this to children because a child alone may not truly understand the essence of the story. If you're on travel with a kid or kids, this will surely kill their boredom. The Little Prince will remind you of the different people that you may meet along the way. The little boy will inspire anybody to travel, that if a little boy can have the strength to travel the universe, you will have the strength to travel the world.
