Fifty States Fiction (or Nonfiction) Challenge

From sea to shining sea, from the mountains to the prairies to the oceans, white with foam, America offers something for everyone. Want to learn more about each state? This is the place to do it.

This is a group for people who want to read either a novel set in each state or a work of nonfiction about each state. Some readers may choose to do both.

The rules are simple:
1. read a novel set in each state or a nonfiction book about each state;
2. books can be read in any order;
3. there is no time deadline, though you can set your own personal deadline if you'd like;
4. you can count books you've read starting in 2009 (but, if you'd rather, you can count books you've read in earlier years); and
5. have fun.

Please feel free to start your own thread to show your own progress towards the 50 state goal and to share books you've discovered.
