Please list books here you would like me to add to the states. Title, author, and state it takes place in please.

Cecilia (cissygold) Okay, I am confused. You add the books? or do we? I added one to Ireland. Oops! Sorry if I did it wrong.

Maybe you could also add a section for future places. ie.. Hunger Games. North America Future Location of what is now the Appalachian Mountains (District 12) and the Rocky Mountains (The Capital)

it doesn't matter who adds the book.

where is the setting, District 12?


message 4: by Cecilia (new)

Cecilia (cissygold) I know the Appalachian Mountains is the whole of the east coast. I must be Pennsylvania to Virgina since they have the coal mines.

This is what Wikipedia says... "District 12 is located in the coal-rich region "Appalachia," referring to the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern United States."

That is the best I can do for you.

To me, that's confusing since District 12 isn't a state.

Since it is specific to that book trilogy, maybe you might want just a general US label for books that take place in unspecified states in the US.


ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) That would make more sense Diane.

Unapologetic_Bookaholic This is my first post. I am not sure if this group is genre specific but I am reading horror novel Pet Sematary by Stephen King. It is set in MAINE. I can get the city* too. It is mentioned but I forgot.

Added. :)

Feel free to add your books directly to the bookshelf in the future. If the country doesn't exist, just add it as a new shelf. The states should all be there, they just start with USA-name.

Dee (austhokie) i tried adding a new shelf and it didn't like me :(

That's not good. What message did it give you?


message 23: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) i don't even have an add-shelf button when i look at the list of the group shelves - normally or in the edit shelves view


message 24: by D.G. (new)

D.G. I added a bunch of shelves without any issues. Have you tried again? Sometimes it acts a bit funky.


message 25: by D.G. (new)

D.G. Oh and I have a question about a shelf...I added a shelf for 'Tahiti' but that's the largest island in the French Polynesia. Should I leave it as Tahiti because it's better known or change it to FP?


message 26: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) yeah - i still have no add shelves

Dee - try this and see if it works.

Enter book title - click Add to Group, click Choose Shelves, Scroll to bottom of box and enter name in space where it says New Shelf and click Save, then scroll up to put a check mark in that new shelves box and click Save Group Book.

That's a good question. I personally wouldn't have known to look for Tahiti under the French Polynesia. My thought would be to leave as is unless we start getting other options in the French Polynesia and then possibly combine. What does everyone else think?

Stephanie Tuell (booksloveme) | 82 comments Mod
I say leave it


message 30: by D.G. (new)

D.G. Makes sense, Diane. Also in the book, they talk about 'Tahiti' not FP. :)


message 31: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) ok, that works...i added a book to the newly made peru shelf
