I’m joining in on this — Not because I expect to finish but so that I can see where I read. Join me!Challenge – 50 States:

The 50 States Reading Challenge
hosted by Tasha at Book Obsessed

The goal of this challenge is to read books that are set in each of the fifty states. Your books can be of any genre and any format (ie. paperback, ebook, audiobook, etc.). No short stories. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine. (Re-read reviews must be written within the year 2012; you can not use old reviews.)

  1. I did this a few years ago. Only I called it "Reading through the States". It was fun but very challenging! The first 25 are easy then as you get to the last 25 it is harder to find books for those states and I found myself doing searches for books to fulfill certain states. It took me the whole year to finish!
    If you have trouble with certain ones let me know I can look up what I read!

    Good luck!

  2. W2W – I thought it looked like fun but I know I have no hope of completing it. I really just want to see if I have a 'typical' setting for my books.

  3. I did one similar for 2011 with Sheila from Journey of Books and we used a google map. It was fun to put markers on each state for where the book was set in. I didn't do all 50 states but had the same reason for doing it. Waiting to see if she hosts again.

  4. What a FUN reading challenge idea! Except I barely read 100 books a year and a lot of fantasy-urban fantasy-paranormal that take place in imaginary places so I'd need 2-3 years to complete this kind of list.

    Good luck! 🙂
