Plotted: A Literary Atlas by Andrew DeGraff

Classic literature buffs are sure to enjoy this book. In Plotted: A Literary Atlas, author and San Francisco-based illustrator Andrew DeGraff has created 19 idiosyncratic and highly detailed maps based on the landscapes and locales in popular literature that offers readers a new way of looking at their favorite fictional worlds. Each chapter begins with a short essay by the book's editor Daniel Harmon with a somewhat philosophical look at some great classics.

Serenity - what a great place to live

Sherryl Woods is one of my all-time favorite authors. If you enjoy reading appealing, character-driven stories infused with the flavor and fragrance of the South, her Sweet Magnolia novels can't be beat. I just finished Where Azaleas Bloom and could not put it down. With all the turmoil in the world today, sometimes it helps to escape to a small town setting where everyone pulls together to help those in need.
