yes!  That's it exactly!

Ditto on that, too.  I find, also that the style in which the map is drawn
will change my mental pictures of the places.

Yes, and, for me at least, sometimes it's fuzzy, like a half remembered
dream, and it's only when I look at something that reminds me that the
whole picture unfolds.

That's odd because i was just thinking about that.  I was switching over to
Sagan's the Cosmic Connection and finding that I wasn't quite engrossed,
and  I didn't know why, and I think that's it.  I always gavitate towards
graphs and graphics in articles/textbooks, and I enjoy watching non-fiction
Educational TV shows, but I don't really enjoy non-fiction books, unless
they have problem sets!  I LOVE problem sets!  Says the perky biochem major
who just got another one from Organic Chem today!  YAY!  I love organic
chemistry.    (I'm overly perky)
