I'm not imagining this, but I can't find it anywhere. Several years ago, I came across a book recommendation sight that was arranged in a graphic organizer/web by author. For example, if I like L. M. Montgomery, I would see authors like Dorothy Canfield Fisher and Louisa May Alcott next to her. It was very interesting, but I can't find it. Anyone remember anything like this, and where it might be located?

... and Amy wins the Librarian-On-the-Ball award with a reply time of 13 minutes. Wow! I was hung up on "web" as a search term when I really needed "map".


What did we do before the internet? Answer: We had no idea that Matt Christopher died in 1997 unless we had the most updated copy of Something About the Author. (That was the "killer app" for me when it came to looking up information, for some bizarre reason!)


  1. Was it this site? http://www.literature-map.com/

    I remember seeing what you are talking about, but can't remember if this was the actual site or not. I found this one after a little Googling.

  2. I remember seeing it too, in grad school, but I can't remember specifically now either...this one maybe?


  3. I thought you meant Literature Map too. I see someone has given you the link already.

  4. Hi Ms. Yingling!
    What an inspiration you are to me. I am a student in the Kent SLIS program. I loved the article on how you read EVERY book in your middle school library. I want to be just like you when I grow up (and I am already older than you!) :)
    Thank you for all of the great information you provide on this blog.
