Reading Across America Books

Reading Across America

My rules are clear--The book has to be set in that state. I'm trying to stay away from the well known cities (so, for Massachusetts, I will try to stay away from Boston). My hope is to criss-cross the U.S., but we will see. I'm going to try to read either a classic or an award-winner, but next year my goal is to read many of the classics I missed, so I don't want to hit them too hard. If I can't find one of those, I will attempt to read a book that is pretty much 'unknown.'
