Response to skip fox (Reply #39)

40. I use Google maps when I'm reading novels.

For some reason, I must have a picture of where the protagonist of a novel is, when the author describes his/her movements around a city --- especially when the city is in a foreign country. So I spend some time looking up the area on Maps.

For instance, I just finished a good mystery set in Iceland: (The Reckoning, by Sigridsdottir sp.?). Never having been to Iceland, it was very helpful.

Of course, I've also "driven" down my old home's street too.
