Books have the power of taking us somewhere else!
With all the governments around the world asking us to stay home, many people are not able to get outside and breathe fresh air as they usually do. If you are someone who loves writing your own adventure, we have some recommendations for how you can bring the outdoors inside.
We asked our BUFF® social media followers for their favourite outdoor books in hopes of bringing the sense of adventure into our homes, supporting the effort to #StayInToStayOut. Help us to make others feel outside and check out our Instagram for submitting your suggestions!
