America… in Books

nasa-1lfI7wkGWZ4-unsplash

One of the reasons I’ve always loved to read is that a good book can transport you to a whole new life, whether it’s a new planet or a new small town. I love novels that spend time building up the setting so that you really get a solid idea of where the story is taking place. I’ve never had the finances to travel, so I travel through books.

For the next 56 days (not including weekends), I’ll be sharing books that will introduce you to each state and U.S. territory. I hope you enjoy! As we proceed each day, I’ll add links to each state here.

  1. I liek this idea, (i do something similar but it’s not a regular post.) I look forward to seeing your posts. I like finding books set in new and exciting places. I am from Scotland and liked finding books set there too, but now I have moved and live in the Isle of Man and not yet found a book set there. (but I am not actively looking, I just not where a book is set when I read it.)
