Its time for a road trip (or plane trip)!

For this challenge, we will be visiting (reading) books from various states or countries! You may choose whatever challenge(s) below that you wish!

For the book to count, it must either:
1. Take place in that state or country (even if its just part of the book, that's okay)
OR
2. The author must be from that place or reside there now

This group has a list of resources to help you find books:
