[IMAGE: Warsaw]Traveling to Poland?

Several culturally-inclined friends have asked me for advice about what to read before visiting Poland. Here is a guide to books that would be of interest to travelers to Poland, and to virtual travelers journeying to a Poland of the mind. I haven't had a chance to update this recently, but people still ask me, and many of these texts are still classics.
