it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, library, favorites, read-when-new
Read from November 11 to 14, 2011

Please read the title carefully, it's not about maps, it's about people who love maps. It's funnier than I expected. It's even better than Brainiac.

Some of the topics are: map collectors, map thieves, road geeks, geocaching, geograpic illiteracy, National Geographic Bee, travelers and highpointers.

It has an index and a notes section. Don't miss the footnotes, many of the funny bits are there.
