A method and application are proposed which will provide the users of an e-book reading device an assistive contextual experience referencing their immediate geolocation. The app will provide an alert service to the user when he is at or near a location depicted in novels, literary nonfiction or other literature. A pop-up appearing in the app shows quotes from the pertinent section of a book, and may include a photo, illustration, or a link to purchase the book. This ability to view a list of books or book excerpts in which the location is depicted provides the booklover an assistive contextual experience. The user can then purchase the book, download it to their device, and read it while they are near the spot described, or store to read later.
