As some of you RBC-ers might remember, there is a thread in the book forum called “Where Have You Been in Books?” (you might not recall, however, that I began this thread 🙂 ) On this thread, we discussed the locations of our various books; if nothing else, we just said where we currently were in our reads.
While browsing Shannon’s list of bookish blogs, I came upon another blog I never seen before: Book Journey. It was Book Journey’s blog that brought to light a lovely way of recording where books take us, using Google Maps. I (essentially) stole this idea from her, and for that I greatly thank her.
I know have, on my sidebar, right beneath my blogroll, it says “Where I’ve Been in Books” with a picture of a globe underneath. If you click on the picture of the globe, it will take you to a map that looks, pretty much, like this:
If you see nothing in the map, try clicking the zoom out button on the left a bunch and it should show you the map. For some reason, it loves to come up as fully zoomed in (which is very stupid).
I think this is so cool! It shows you in a more physical way where you’ve been 😀
(PS- There is a list to the side, if you actually go to the map at Google Maps, that names the title and lets you click on them to see what pin goes with the title.)
