A book is a literary compass that has the potential to direct our thoughts and actions:

"Everything we read stimulates our mind to think, and what we think determines what we desire, and desires are the seedbed of our actions. Given this iron law of human nature--from reading to thinking, to desiring, to acting--we are shaping our destiny by the ideas we choose to have enter our minds through print." - Fr. John Hardon, S.J., The Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan

Welcome to my own personal exploration of life through reading the great books of the world.

Virtual Travel for the Literary-Minded

(cross-posted at Teen Literacy Tips)

The English Department at San Jose State University has created Literary Locales, a web site that links to over 1,000 pictures of "places that figure in the lives and writings of famous authors." It could be organized more effectively, and some of the links are broken, but there are some great images indexed there. It's a terrific site for those studying or teaching literature.

Take a look at some of the destinations:
There are hundreds of links, and you could spend hours virtually visiting these literary locations.
