State By State Challenge

The Fifty State Reading Challenge is one that I've heard about from several sources. As with the majority of my other challenges, I'll be doing this one on my own...unattached from a blogging event.

Here's the plan:

The State by State Challenge is a three-year challenge. The challenge begins on June 1, 2017 and runs through May 31, 2020. During that time, I need to read at least one book set in each of the fifty states. I can only use each book once and the book must be set in that state for a substantial amount of the book (at least 1/3). It can't be used as just a pass through.

As I finish the books, I will list them here next to their state, as well as the date they were finished. In addition, I'll be coloring in the map below as each state is conquered. Here's to reading across the United States!
