Reading Maps

The staff at the Berwyn Public Library have begun to create reading maps on books they have enjoyed.  “What’s a reading map?”  you ask.  As first described by Neal Wyatt in Library Journal:

“Reading maps are web-based visual journeys through books that chart the myriad associations and themes of a title via other books, pictures, music, links to web sites, and additional material. Reading maps open up the world of the book for the reader by diagramming the internal life of the book, allowing readers to inhabit the text and its outward connections, and enabling readers to follow threads of interest that stem from any particular part of the work.”

In this spirit, the staff offers you these reading maps.  Please feel free to contact us at ra[at]berwynlibrary[dot]org if you would like us to turn your favorite book into a reading map.  And check back regularly for new maps.
