The Great American Road Trip Book Challenge

The Great American Road Trip Book Challenge

I’ve decided to start a new reading challenge. I saw Erin post about a “USA Reading Roadtrip” and I thought it sounded like fun. I’m going to give myself until May 15th 2017 to finish it, a year from when I decided to start it.

The idea is to read a book that takes place in each of the 50 States. Here is my tentative list. I am 100% certain that this list will change and evolve, but it gives me a place to start.
