Map of 42 Great American books

Another book map! I love this one from artist Mark Adams, who created an infographic to show the locations of 42 works of American literature. It was featured on mental_floss, and I’ve added it to the Resources page on Andrea Reads America. Hat tip to Krista Stevens for sharing this!

How many of these have you read?

  1. I’ve read 20, if you include Flannery O’Connor’s “Wise Blood.” which I started a few days ago. I had to re-read your post to realize the map is the location of the settings rather than the author’s home state, because I thought hey, Flannery O’Connor isn’t from Tennessee. The story is set in Taulkinham, though.
