Reading Books Set in Every State | 50 States Reading List

I love a reading challenge, as anyone that has read this blog for any length of time will know. I’m also a fan of reading books in other geographical locations, apart from the United Kingdom. However, I still have a lot of work to do in that regard, so I’ve decided to try and read books set in every state of America.

Below is a list of all of the United States of America, and next to some of them are the books I’ve read that are based in that location. There are still quite a few states where I’ve read nothing set in that location. To be remedied!
