Around the Google Earth in 80 Days

Someone at the Google Earth Community has published 19 annotated placemarks for Jules Verne’s book “Around the World in 80 Days “. Included are references to the chapters and events related to each placemark. After you download the placemarks you can select the first placemark in the folder “80jours” (the poster was French) and choose “Play Tour” to fly to each placemark.
In his post, ‘H21’ included a link to the entire online version of the book where you can look up his references. As with movies and historical documentaries, I expect we will see many more similar collections of placemarks based on literary references.
