Sister's Tuesday Quick Tip of The Day: How to travel to other countries without a passport or visa

What does summer reading have to do with being a vegetarian, vegan, or raw vegan? Alot! For starters, it's a great way to relax and unwind which is vital for leading a successful vegetarian, vegan, or raw lifestyle. In addition, it's a way to incorporate world vegetarian or vegan meals into your weekly plans by experimenting with meals you've read about in your books, or prepare world meals to gain a better understanding about the cuisines of a country that you are reading about in your summer reading series. We spend so much time working and taking care of family, that we forget one of the most basic forms of relaxation is literally right between our hands - books or electronic readers.

We tend to associate reading with summer leisure because of the stress reduction and relaxation it provides by transporting us mentally to another city, country, continent, or life through someone else's journey, travels, espionage, life on another planet, or another time. Even if you do not have the means to travel to other countries, reading can take you there through fiction or non-fiction.

My local library system has a fun way to begin our summer reading by focusing on traveling to other countries through fictional books (see list below courtesy of my local library system, wake County Public Library). Below is a list of countries and continents from my local library's website, and suggested fictional books under each country or continent that you would love to travel to fictionally. Click on a country/continent or click on all. Let your mind travel to foreign lands and be entertained without leaving your chair. With this weekend being a holiday weekend in the U.S. (Independence Day), what better time to unwind than at the beach, mountains, camping, porch, backyard, or inside your home with a good book.

Where in the World Are We? Reading Lists by Wake County Public Library: click on countries below for each countrie's book list or see the libraries entire summer event (click here for library website on event)

Have even more fun by making a vegetarian or vegan snack or meal that coincides with the country you are traveling to in your book to make it as though you are actually on this journey to another country. Pack a vegetarian or vegan meal for the beach or camping this weekend that is synonymous to the theme of the book you are reading. Check out Sister's Recipe Page (click here) for world vegetarian and vegan meals and snacks, or other websites for world cuisines. Relax and enjoy your vegetarian or vegan journey through books.

If you are pressed for time to purchase a book this weekend for some holiday down-time reading, do not fret, many libraries now offer downloading of books for free with your library card. All books are not available for downloading through the library, but you will have a sufficient variety to start you on your passport-free and visa-free world wind traveling week or weekend!

This will be a journey to other countries that is well worth the trip!

What is Sister Reading for the Summer ?
Ahab's Wife: Or, The Star-gazer: A Novel (P.S.) by Sena Jeter Naslund

A book of fiction that picks up on the story of Moby Dick as told by Captain Ahab's wife, Una. She herself was a woman beyond her time - she was a sailor, adventurer, free-thinking, and independent woman. The story takes place in Massachusetts, Kentucky, and exotic locations of world travel.

The October Horse: A Novel of Caesar and Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough

excerpt from "Caesar is finishing the civil war against Pompey's forces (especially against Cato the Younger), developing a liaison and an alliance with Cleopatra in Egypt and returning to Rome to begin to reform the system until his enemies assassinate him in the Senate. The book ends with his nephew Octavius and Mark Antony taking on the assassins in a victorious second civil war followed by the initial murmurings of competition between Octavius (Caesar Augustus to be) and Antony.
