THE GLOBE CORNER BOOKSTORES
A travel geek’s delight, THE GLOBE CORNER BOOKSTORES is one of the biggest purveyors of globes, maps, travel guides, language books, and atlases in this country. You want birding books, a destination of the month (right now, it’s Spain and Morocco, so any books on those countries are 15 percent off), and a staff travel blog? Done. A recent scan of its comprehensive Web site for books on Africa, for example, found titles for all but one of that continent’s 52 countries (no love for Chad, GCB?). And if you feel like traveling without actually packing a passport, take advantage of their Armchair Travel section, which allows you to daydream of collecting frequent-flyer miles from a comfy chair.
