Any good books on culture / landmarks?
Hey everyone,This particular area doesn't seem too well populated with topics or discussions, but I'm still hoping someone might be able to point out a couple suggestions.I'm looking for any decent, "easy to read" books or compendiums or anything that might give an overview on various cultures, practices, historical landmarks, etc. This doesn't all have to be in one book for sure, but I am really not that well traveled and in the interests of trying to really enhance the world at large in my story, I'd like to read up on things and see if I can get some inspiration from what may be practiced elsewhere in the world or popular places with a fascinating history. Anything from marriage rites and rituals, customs involving death and burial, to everyday life. Past or present even.
I know this is a pretty broad request. I've searched through Amazon for something that fits this criteria and, unsurprisingly, there's a LOT of options. If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, be it book or even website perhaps, now that I think of it, I'd love the additional feedback before I take the plunge and buy something that may not necessarily be what I'm looking for.
