Have you ever wanted to visit the locations of your favorite books? If so, plotting your next literary vacation just got easier with this handy Google Maps mash-up by Lovereading.co.uk. How about a road trip that starts getting nostalgic in New England with Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, moves to getting creeped out in New Hampshire with Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, then relives Arthur Miller’s The Crucible in Salem, Massachusetts, Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Lowland in Rhode Island, J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye in Agerstown, Pennsylvania, before moving over to NYC to check out the restaurants in Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho. After that, you can swing over to Long Island to see the house that inspired The Great Gatsby… which just went on sale for a cool $3.9 million! The map is hardly restricted to the North East though. Lovereading.co.uk has mapped books across the entire globe. Click around and explore it here. 14 Responses Sherrie Miranda May 22, 2015 This is excellent!
