Bibliosphere, viewed with Worldmapper

Worldmapper is a wonderful way of gaining a visual perspective on many aspects, social (demography, health, education, etc), economic, cultural, of the globe. 

Maps 343, 344 (below) show the total book titles published, and the total book loans from public libraries, respectively, in 1999. Map 2 shows populations, and serves as the reference for other maps.

Titles Published

Book Loans
