Try and read a book that takes place in each of the 50 states.
You can earn up to 30 points for this challenge. Some of the states will be very hard to find, so I'm making this a little easier by not expecting you to get every single one. Also, it's okay in this challenge ONLY to use books that you're using for other challenges.

Books must not have been read before 12/16/11 for this challenge.

Darcy, you're a beast! I keep getting the same states since I'm reading series, as well as sticking to the same authors.


message 20: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments I have had some books with the same states, but have been lucky enough for a lot of different ones. I also have had books where they take place in multiple states, so I can pick which one I have. Since it is so early I am going to try to get them all. We'll see how that goes.


message 21: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
NE, KS, ND, SD, WI are probably going to be the hardest for me.


message 22: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments For WI try Lori Handeland, if I remember right the early ones in her shifters series are in WI. For NE, KS Shannon K. Butcher writes her Sentinel War series there, I think. For SD check out Lori G. Armstrong. If I find ND, I'll let you know.


message 23: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
Thanks. I've been stuck in Ohio, New York, and Washington for the last few weeks. I have a feeling Kentucky is my next stop of 6 or so books all from one location.


message 24: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments Yeah, if you keep reading all in the same series that happens.


message 25: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments So I finished my 30, now am going for all 50.


message 26: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
Good luck.


message 27: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
Delaware, New Hampshire, and Utah are probably going to be complicated. If you find anything I'm totally stealing from you. ;)


message 28: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments I know for Utah I can always re-read an Ellen Hopkins book, the others will be tough. Good think I have the rest of the year. I won't panic til October or so.


message 29: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
=) Good to know there's an Utah out there.


message 30: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne | 89 comments Heather, can you use a book that may have a scene in one state but mostly takes place in another state?


message 31: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
Ya. With some states that's as close as you're getting unless you read a book that you have no interest. As long as they do more than change planes at the airport, you're good.


message 32: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments So I only have 10 states left, most of them are going to be hard. I almost feel like shouting now when I hear a state that I am missing. I know some of them I will get with books coming out later this year, but a few are going to be hard.

I was waiting and waiting for Kentucky, then when I found it, the next 5 books I read were in Kentucky. Always happens like that! lol


message 33: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
I've been stuck in Cali, Idaho, New York, Washington and Kentucky. I've read at least 10 books from all of them.


message 34: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments That is because you are reading series. You need to break out and read just one book. lol

When I do that, they all take place in England! I swear I could have filled every section of England by now if that had been the challenge.


message 36: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
I'm done with the first 30. Now I have to try for the rest. I think I'll just see what happens first and then start searching out books since I have time.


message 37: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments Good job Heather! I hope you find the rest.


message 38: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
I looked at some of the stuff you all came up with and it looks like the harder ones are all kindle downloads. You had one by Dahl that was a group of stories, but I can't even find it on amazon - The Wicked West. Others of you have stuff that fits some things I'm missing, but they definitely look like bodice rippers so I'll try and stall until I'm stuck. =)


message 39: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments The Dahl one I got free at B&N. It was a story that the character that wrote erotic stories in Talk Me Down. It was quick and fun.

Nichole gave me this link, http://www.bookssetin.com/ when I was looking for a Utah book. It helped me find the harder ones I was looking for. But you have to becareful, the one that said it was Delaware, but it wasn't, it was North Caroline, but same city name as in Delaware.


message 40: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
Haha. That's mean. Delaware would be hard to find. I'll check out B&N.


message 41: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (Sunnytat462) | 2759 comments I finally found my last one, North Dakota, so I have all 50 now.

Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling, #7) by Nalini Singh
They go to Vermont in this book if that helps anyone.


message 47: by Heather (new)

Heather T (Horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
So, I started this in a different group with the intent to really keep track of where books were from, but I didn't keep up with it that well. That being said, if there are some ideas for a few states http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/3...
Some states still need suggestions, but maybe it'll help a few of you.

I was all excited because there's like 3 pages of Redwood Bend that take place in Vermont and then realized I already had it. =) It was Delaware I needed.
