While most people won’t be doing much traveling this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t go on a mental vacation. From books that inspire wanderlust, make you laugh out loud or just make you think about something other than your own life, a great book has that uncanny ability to bring new worlds to life.

This holiday season, why not dive into a few feel-good books that transport you to somewhere new? Thanks to Audible, that is actually easier than ever because new subscribers can grab a title for free when they take advantage of the service’s free trial. Another option? Splurge a little and get six months of Audible for just $4.95.
