Project Book List

Looking for the ultimate list of fiction set in Washington, D.C.? Browse this list and use the ‘mapped status’ column to determine if a book has been examined and entered onto the map.

 

— Fully mapped = book has been thoroughly examined for relevant passages
— Partially mapped = book still needs some work.
— Unmapped means = no one has looked at the book yet

 

Pick up a copy of partially mapped or unmapped books and visit the “Add Listings” page to enter interesting passages. You can also enter passages from books that aren’t on our list! For a list of what’s been mapped from a particular book, click on the title. If you experience difficulties or spot mistakes, contact project staff at info@dcbythebook.com.
