Travel Guide Books

All this info is taken from this NY Times article... and summarized or expounded upon.

Lonely Planet is launching a new guidebook -- Bluelist 2007. On the Lonely Planet Bluelist website (which runs in tandem with the book and lets readers get involved in the recommendations), "bluelist" is defined as a verb: "to recommend a travel experience." Therefore, rather than fully explain everything about locations, Bluelist is just offering recommendations for its writers favorite or most intriguing experiences, as a friend would.

In other guidebook news, Rough Guides is doing their part for the environment by publishing the Rough Guide to Climate Change, which the co-founder of Rough Guides says he intends to send to every Senator.
