I have just come across an excellent website through librarything: Pack-a-book. Before you travel it the author of this site recommends you read - not just travel guides but novels set in the place - and has matched up location to novels.

I think this is a truly excellent idea. Travel guides are all very well, but I think novels help to give an even better feel of a country - especially if they are written by a native. I did manage to find a good few novels about China before I went there last year, but I have spotted a few more on this site that I missed. So I am going to get them now instead so I can relive my journey.
