I’d originally wanted to celebrate graduation with a cross-country road trip, which for obvious reasons won’t be possible this year. But when I saw the Goodreads list “Armchair Traveling: Books Set in Every U.S. State [plus D.C.]”, I figured this might be a somewhat acceptable substitute. (I won’t be following their list, but wanted to credit the source/inspiration for my challenge.)
Since I just want to keep it simple, there aren’t really any rules for this challenge. I’ll continue to read books by diverse (Q/POC) authors, which hasn’t really been an issue for me; the location doesn’t need to feature heavily in the story.
I’m hoping to finish by the end of the year, but I won’t stress too much about it. Seven Twelve months. Fifty-one places & books. Let’s do this. 🚗

- Have you ever done a similar challenge and/or would you ever consider doing one? (If you don’t live in the U.S., this could still be for the States, or maybe the regions/states/provinces of your home country!)
- What are some of your favorite books set in your home state (or non-U.S. country)?
