Want to read a book set in your state? Just one? The most popular books set in each of the fifty states are shown on the map attached to this Arts.Mic story. Closer to home we find the Literary Map of NYC and the website Literary Manhattan. Here’s yet another map/book site, this one from New York Public Library.

It’s happening all over. I recently reported on a similar venture covering Edinburgh and environs. This site, Placing Literature, holds out the promise of mapping wherever. Readers are invited to “add a scene” to the database, which already includes lots of references.

Here, from The Digital Reader, is a story about how your local library wants you to read local too.
