Take a Literary Journey With These Booksmith Recs

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Booksmith staffers appreciate wanderlust —they have to considering the number of travelers who stroll by the Haight Street shop each day— and the store's book selections for our final Beach Reads installment of the year reflect both the challenges and joys of escaping everyday life. So as you prepare to hit the road for a final summer adventure, pack a literary companion who's enjoying a journey as well. From ladies leaving behind the ordinary to a hitchhiker traveling to San Francisco, these picks will remind you that life, like literature, is a trip.
