World Book Day is on Tuesday, April 23, and Airbnb has a special offer for those looking to bring the worlds of their favourite stories to life.
On Tuesday, 10 hosts will offer their literary-inspired spaces for $US17 a night, plus applicable taxes and fees. That’s the same price as the average cost of a book. Customers will have the chance to choose between selected dates throughout May, June, and July.
The list includes homes reminiscent of some of the most popular novels, such as a home in New Bern, North Carolina, that evokes the setting of “The Notebook,” and a massive estate in the village of Chawton, England, that was the birthplace of “Pride and Prejudice.”
