With all the extra time at home, you may be in the midst of finally tackling your book collection. But there’s always room for some fresh reading inspiration, and one website will help find your next pick based on your dream travel destination (which could also quell some of that quarantine-induced wanderlust you’ve been dealing with). lets you explore an entire database filled with novels, travelogues, and memoirs set in over 2,000 countries, regions, and cities around the world, allowing you to “visit” just about any destination your heart desires. It lets you search based on location, but you can also filter by genre, author, and even the era in which the book is set.

You can reread beloved classics like “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” and “The Bell Jar” that both take place in New York City, or discover potential new favorites, like “The Darkness,” a chilling thriller in which a body is found off the coast of Iceland, with mysterious circumstances aplenty. And with the whole world to cover, you won’t run out of options anytime soon.

In addition to finding books based on the destination you want to visit post-quarantine, you can also join the TripFiction Book Club to virtually meet other book lovers, post reviews, add new books to the database, and even take part in weekly giveaways.

Thanks to this site, you can book-travel to just about any time period and location in the world—no passport or suitcase required.
