Next time you’re planning a trip to a new location, skip buying paper guidebooks and download them onto your e-reader instead. Not only will you be able to carry all of them with you on your trip, but you will be able to search the books for where to go, or for the back story on that historic building that you tour.
If you do decide to go for a paper guidebook, consider using a book cover to make sure you don’t stand out as a tourist.
