Map of the City Where Every Novel Takes Place

[via electricliterature.com]

In this bookish city, Animal Farm is a farm off of Wuthering Heights road. The park system includes Lunar Park, Jurassic Park, Mansfield Parkand The Asphalt Jungle. You can go hiking At the Mountains of Madness and Cold Mountain, or take a dip in Dead Lagoon.

Designed by Dorothy, you can purchase the map as a 60cm x 80cm print

This is super cool. Where would you like to live?

Word Woman’s Weekly Workout

Welcome to another incredible installment of Word Woman’s Weekly Work-Out!  On this day in 1920, Christopher Robin Milne was born.  Son of the famous children’s author A. A. Milne, his boyhood antics served as the inspiration for the beloved “Winnie-the-Pooh” stories.  Here’s an entertaining Word of the Week to occupy your neural pathways:

 Virescent:    [adjective]

1.  Beginning to be green :  greenish

2.  Developing or displaying virescence

 “Virescent”, http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/virescent?show=0&t=1406155966, 7/23/2014

Example:  John’s face took on a virescent hue when his father passed him the plate of hard-boiled eggs at dinner.

                                   

Christopher Robin is not the only beloved son to be born on this date:  Happy 16th Birthday, Word Boy!
