Looking for something to read?

Check out the really neat, fun new tool, Literature Map. You type in the name of a favorite author and a “cloud” of related/similar authors appears. The closer the name is to the chosen author, the more likely you will enjoy them. You can then click on a new author and start following the trail.

Neat idea and after playing around a little bit, it definitely seems to be fairly accurate. Looks like I will have to poke around a bit and see who else I can find.

Thanks to Melissa on the UUHomeschooling email list for the link.


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!
