A long time ago, someone here recommended a website with books order by the locations in which the stories were set. Can I find it for the life of me? Can I heck. Please help....

Novels, for sure, and I may have said crime or mysteries. I can visualise the website and it divided by genre as well as location.

Elberko, thanks for that. That wasn't it, but I'll have a wee look round

I thought that might have been it, Pepper. The page looks familiar, but I can't see a way to search by setting. Given you've now said that, it must be user error on my part and I need to go and have a hunt

emmmm... I really can't find a "setting" tag
or list or anything, but I'm pretty sure it's Goodreads I was looking for. Can you help, Pepper?

OIC. It's definitely not the same then, because you used to be able to search by country and this just gives lists. Still pretty interesting, but.

There are various websites that give lists like this -- goodreads and wikipedia and about.com for a few. Some guidebooks do, also.

Just type into google what country you are interested in and you'll get these type of hits. For example, type into good "books set in spain" etc and you'll find goodreads and others
