    This chapter explores reading and writing on the move, through the transnational medium of pilgrims' books. I consider evidence of pilgrims reading and drafting during their travels and using reading and writing materials during and after their journeys. In particular I look at the ways in which pilgrimage was a stimulus to writing as well as to reading, and a process that put the material facets of textual production into a variety of dynamic and often surprising relations with communities of readers and writers.
