RachelvlehcaR (charminggirl) | 4364 comments location

Hello Firebirds! I thought it'd be fun to track all the places we go while reading during W.O.B.B.L.E. and then when it's over see how many different places we've been.

I created a Google Map for it: HERE

So I'd need to know:

1. Where your book took place (if more than one location, let me know the one where the characters were the most). You can either message me with the locations or leave a comment here, I'll need book title, location, and rating, and I'll add your books/locations to the map. :)

2. Do you have a color preference for your marker/peg on the map? Here are the colors they could be: Bright Yellow, Medium Green, Dark Green (Megan), Cyan, Bright Blue, Dark Blue, Purple, Dark Red, Bright Red, Vivid Orange (Rachel), Orange, Brown, White, Black, Grey, Pink, and Lavender.

Feel free to add books you've read since the start of W.O.B.B.L.E and if it's easier, when posting a finished book you can add the location and rating.
