Places I've Visited in Books

Thanks to Kim at Page After Page for this very cool idea (that she heard through Weekly Geeks)!

The map below shows places I've visited through reading - settings of various books I've read (at least those I could remember!). I've read about a lot of different places in the past few years especially and learned so much about the world, but making this map made me realize how many more places are out there. For instance, I've read lots of wonderful books about India - so many that I even have a Category Label for it! - but there are so many other countries in Asia I haven't read about. Since I don't have the means to travel the world in person, I'm glad I can go to these places in books!

  1. I'd probably have a hard time listing places I've not read about as yet. I make a special effort to read books set in places I don't know about! But this is a reallyn cool idea, I agree.

  2. Oooh, I love this!

    If you want to add Canada, might I suggest some books by LM Montgomery, who wrote Anne of Green Gables? You can read most of them online or download free audiobooks!

  3. Connie -

    Yeah, leaving Canada out felt strange to me - I must have read a book set in Canada at some point in my life, right? I just couldn't think of one. Thanks for the suggestion - I've never read Anne of Green Gables!
