Europe On The Cheap? Voila: A Grand Literary Tour

"Three Books ..." is a series in which we invite writers to recommend three great reads on a single theme.

Some friends of mine recently did an experiment while traveling through Europe. In an effort to gauge the value of the dollar, they visited a McDonald's in every country to compare the prices. The cost of a Big Mac in Norway? Almost eight bucks.

Between that and the price of airfare, I won't be taking the Grand Tour any time soon. But I can still go abroad this summer. All I need to do is crack open one of the following three books.
