Genre map!

Genre Map, source: Book Country

 

I was looking around on the internet for some information on Young Adult readers today when I came across this great, interactive genre map on Book Country. As you roll over certain parts of the map, labels pop up to show you different genres of books. There is a fiction area, a non-fiction area and an area specific to Young Adult literature. All of the countries on the map are shaped to suit their genre and when you click on a particular country, it takes you to a page showing you books that fit within that genre. Rolling over those books gives you a short synopsis of the text and clicking on them takes you to the publisher pages for the text. The book lists are by no means exhaustive and some countries don’t have any books listed at all as yet, but the idea is fun. Who doesn’t love a good map in their novel?
