mapping reading and the ABCs of verbal art

A colleague showed me this site recently, and I am experimenting with it as a way to push and share this summer’s reading–summer for those of us in the northern hemisphere.

The site encourages me to read across the map, especially since I teach a high school sophomore class called World Literature.  I owe it to the students and myself and other global citizens to read widely.

Across literary genres and world regions, the human experience shines through.  It houses art, beauty and challenge–the ABCs of verbal art.
