Well that’s it folks. A couple of weeks ago I asked you to nominate your most inspirational Travel Books for 2012. They didn’t need to be published in 2012, but they did need to inspire you enough to get off your bottom and to actually go out and travel.
I’ve been stunned by the response – so many books have been nominated that I’ve had to narrow them down to the top 20 so that voting will be a little more sensible. The winners of the nomination competition to win a £30 Traveldri-Plus voucher and a Lonely Planet book up to the value of £15 are:
- 1st Place – Greg Hughes (voucher)
- 2nd Place – Steve Freeman (book)
Congratulations to you both. Now, without further ado – get clicking the votes below and help make your favourite travel book the 2012 Inspirational Travel book of the year!
I asked a question on twitter and Facebook last week about the travel books that have most inspired you. I was amazed at the response. With that in mind I’ve decided to launch an annual list of the top 10 most inspiring travel books in the world. The idea is to create a list of books that we can read throughout the year – books that will help people get off the couch and make their trips a reality.
So to kick things off here is the 2012 nominations form. I’ll keep nominations open for 10 days (closing at midnight on the 21st January 2012). The titles nominated will then be put up for public voting over another 10 days – we’ll then be able to announce the top 10 most inspiring travel books for 2012. You can nominate any book – it doesn’t need to have been published recently.
To help things along I’m going to put two prizes up for grabs – 1st prize is a Traveldri Plus £30 voucher and 2nd prize is a Lonely Planet book of your choice up to a max value of £15. In order to enter you must provide your details on the form below (which you can also access directly here). Judges (my) decision is final and winners will be selected at random from all nominations received.
