What books make you want to go and live there?

I'm reading "The Family Man" by Elinor Lipman, and I wish I could just enter that world and hang out with those people. I often feel this way about her books.

Which books make you want to walk inside them and live for awhile?

Definitely Saving Francesca and Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. They remind me so much of the kids at my school The Alex Rider series made me feel like being a spy for a while . I only got to read the first two Harry Potter books, but they were awesome

And about the title...I've seen it as both here in Canada, but the first one I saw was "Philosopher's". I've seen that more often than "Sorcerer's" Does Wikipedia mention anything about it?
