BW28: Sunday's Book Babble - the joy of maps


World of Harry Potter 

It's week 28 in our 52 Books quest and this week we're talking about Maps. Whether you explore by foot, car, train, sailing ship or  space ship, authors and characters like to explore and helpfully provide us with maps of their worlds and their journeys. 

Some fun links about maps:

Bookriot's Grounds for Murder: Maps and Floor Plans in Mystery Novels.

And last but not least, one of my favorite things is creative cartography which was introduced to me in a writing class and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring Maps of the Imagination: The Writer as Cartographer.

I finally started the 14th and last book in the Wheel of Time series, A Memory of Light. Which happens to have a beautiful map in the front of the book.  Also reading ebook Cogman’s 7th book in the Invisible Library series, The Dark Archive.  Waiting in the wings is Ben Aaronovitch’s 2nd book in the Rivers of London series, Moon over Soho, which has a map on the cover.
