Welcome to the first posting of Littourati. Each installment of this blog will focus on a point on a journey that is laid out in a book. The installment will continue until the journey is completed, and feature a place, a quote, some personal reflections, and some additional information.
A Google Map, and in many cases, a Google Earth tour, will be provided for the reader to journey along with the author.
It is a hope that such a site will pique readers' interests not only in the literature, but in the places described and perhaps their own reflections. Perhaps some enterprising readers will choose to visit or retrace the routes laid out! If so, maybe this blog will be helpful and inspiring.
However, keep in mind that journeys are best traveled slowly, with the traveler taking some time to learn about the places and process his or her feelings about them. The journey will eventually end, so don't be too hasty to get to the conclusion!
Please enjoy, and happy traveling! Post comments, reflections, anything you like on the authors, books, or places. And if you have any suggestions for reading material that might be reviewed by Littourati, please don't hesitate to recommend a book! It may well end up being toured!
