LitMap Project – Find Books by their geographic location

on September 25, 2013

Now this is an awesome resource I wish I knew about earlier! This is great for reader’s advisory, trip planning and more.

Explore the world through literature with the LitMap Project, the geographic book database. Books are mapped onto the LitMap by where they take place or the place they are about. We map nonfiction, fiction, mystery, science fiction, any kind of literature that can be associated with a specific geographic location. (http://www.litmapproject.com/about)

Visit the homepage and click on the map to find books about any of the pinned locations on the map. Click on the book covers in the pinmarks to find the books on Amazon. Registered LitMap users can add their favorite books to the map.
