July 2017 Monthly Challenge - ROAD TRIP
Begins: 01July17 / Ends: 31July17

Summer vacation when I was a kid meant a road trip. Like my Daddy, I love to drive. So this month let's hit the road and see the USA (Chevrolet, optional)

Your book should have action at least 50% in the specified state. One state/book per region required to complete the challenge (BONUS is just that, bonus/optional)

1. Northeast - Read a book set in: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C

---------------------------------------------------------

Rules of the challenge
Books must be at least 100 pages in length
A book counts for only ONE task per challenge (but feel free to use it for other challenges ... in the past or in another group).
Re-reads are fine, as long as you actually read the entire book
Book should be finished within the time-frame of the challenge.
Any format ("dead tree," e-book, audio...) is fine.

If you want acknowledgement that you have completed the challenge you MUST include the date you finished reading each book.

As always, have fun!
