Traveling Days-Idiot's Guide to Backpacking/Family Destinations! R/G

I'm sure you're familiar with the Complete Idiot's Guide books...who hasn't, at some point, seen or read at least one of those popular orange-covered books? My first experience with the CIG series was about 8 years ago, when I picked up a copy of the CIG to HTML. I became a fan right there, and have enjoyed reading books on various subjects since then. Of course, when thinking of guidebooks to include in the Traveling Days event, who should I think of first but Complete Idiot's Guide?

I received 2 books from CIG for review; the Complete Idiot's Guide to Backpacking, and the Complete Idiot's Guide to The Best Family Destinations. 
I was not disappointed in these books, as they read along the same manner as other CIG. Easy to read, funny, yet sharing such helpful information! You're never bored, and you come away from the book with a wealth of information on the subject. 

The Family Destinations book is perfect for anyone looking for that vacation destination. Whether you're looking for a city vacation, something a little more rural, or an in-between area, and no matter what part of the country you'd like to visit-you can learn helpful hints in this book! I browsed some of the areas we've been looking at visiting, as well as some of our family favorites such as Chicago and Branson. Both of these cities are covered with tips for places to visit, popular attractions, and dining options. I love how easy this makes vacation planning!

The CIG to Backpacking, is, obviously, designed for people who enjoy or want to start backpacking. This is something I've always thought would make a fun vacation, so I enjoyed the read. Whether you're a beginning backpacker or an old pro, you'll still find helpful information in here. The book covers everything from equipment to trails to health on the trail. Very detailed, and very easy to read!

One of my readers will receive a copy of the CIG to Backpacking or Best Family Destinations (winner's choice)!!
