This is not so much a journal as a collaborative literary geography of the places we’ve read about, and subsequently visited.
We live thousands of lives through the pages of our beloved books, and sometimes we are blessed with the luck of being able to physically visit the spaces occupied by our fictional friends (or foes). This is a place to discover those spaces; and perhaps find a new one or two near you.
If you know of a destination or landmark that can be found in a book, or you have a sneaking suspicion of one, please, submit to us your encounter. Give us your thoughts, feelings, even pictures. The strange, funny, sad, and silly are all welcome here.
And here is a description of what we are looking for specifically:
Any piece published on this site must contain two things:
1. It must contain a physical place.
2. It must contain a specific geographical point from an actual book, author, genre, or period of writing.
I am looking for engaging, touching, funny, soulful, sad, silly, enchanting, and interesting pieces about the interactions between the fictional books we love (and the people that wrote them) and the places they wrote about, the places they wrote in, or the places they wished existed which now exist.
The only exception to this is literary landmarks that stand on their own such as libraries.
Preferably posts would come with pictures, but it is not necessary.
