Short Cuts:

Worlds to Imagine: Dream Journeys for Romantic Travelers; and Nights to Imagine: Magical Places to Stay in America, by Peter Guttman, Fodor’s Travel Publications, Inc., New York City, $18 and $17, respectively

Plotting a romantic Valentine’s Day or a special winter getaway? These miniature coffee table books will send hearts yearning for distant lands or at least keep your date busy flipping through the pretty pictures while you finish getting ready for dinner out at the local Italian place. Worlds to Imagine highlights 29 destinations worldwide, from Bora Bora to Burma, each with a few gorgeous photographs (taken by the author) and just enough descriptive prose to make the reader want to be there immediately. A back-of-the-book index gives contacts and pricing information for those who might actually go. Nights, meanwhile, profiles 32 places to stay in the United States. Peter Guttman might go for just a night, but the rest of us would probably call it a vacation. Want more? There’s another book in the series: Adventures to Imagine: Thrilling Escapes in North America.
