Posting this early because I'll be away with unknown internet access at the beginning of 2015.
It's a multi-year rolling challenge - start when you like, set your own limit (12 months, 18 months or all 24 months). I'll be doing the 24 month version because there's no way with work, school and other challenges that I would be able to read more than 2-3 states/month.
Here are the rules:
Read a book from every state in the USA (bonus: optional is the District of Columbia). The book's setting should be primarily in that state/territory, but doesn't have to 100% stay in the state. Any kind of book is fine - library, e-book, audiobook or BC book. One state per book please.
Instead of a long list, post what # state you're up to AFTER you read the book, the book title, BCID if applicable and a little about it.
??'s - post below or PM me.
Here is a link to some book suggestions for the 50 states: http://www.businessinsider.com/most-famous-book-set-in-every-state-map-2013-10 http://www.epicreads.com/---/the-united-states-of-ya/http://www.bkmag.com/---/the-literary-united-states-a-map-of-the-best-book-for-every-state/
Some great books can be found by searching on a keyword at the library & looking at the juvenile section. Search previous years in Book Talk forum (keyword states or the state you're looking for)
If you do LibraryThing, some folks have added Common Knowledge places to books. Just add "CK: Important Places" to one of your lists of books to see if someone entered a place that you need.
Here are the states:
District of Columbia (optional)
