Default New Books Area

A new Books area has been added which offers travel and photography books through Amazon which I hope will prove useful to others as trips are prepared to different regions or to learn more about photography.

Location: http://www.trekearth.com/books/

Some of the features:

1. Travel Books are organized by region, (Continent -> Country -> City).

2. Browse books by categories, (Travel: Guide Books, Travelogues, Maps, Languages, Culture, History, Literature, Calendars; Photography: Artistic, Technical), publishers (Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Frommer's, Fodor's etc.), and region (see above).

3. Books are available from the Japan, United Kingdom and United States Amazon site. (One may select the store location from a dropdown menu on the left side.

4. Amazon ratings, selected customer reviews, pricing and other book information is displayed along with the book image.

5. A [Make Recommendation] option within TrekEarth to allow TrekEarth members to recommend books to others.

6. A "Recommend Book" link to add books not currently listed on the TrekEarth site.

I encourage members to make recommendations, suggest other books to add, and to consider purchasing travel and photography books through the TrekEarth site as this will support TrekEarth as it continues to grow and improve.

Please let me know if you find any problems or have suggestions on how to improve this new Books feature. Thanks.
