50 States Challenge 2013

Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!

This challenge is being hosted by Tasha at Book Obsessed!

Here are the details copied from Tasha's blog:
50 States Challenge 2013

The goal of this challenge is to read books that are set in each of the fifty states.

Your books can be of any genre and any format (ie. paperback, ebook, audiobook, etc.).

No short stories. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine. (Re-read reviews must be written within the year 2013; you can not use old reviews.)

You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. The idea of this challenge came from a Goodreads group.

**Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

**Non-Bloggers: Sign up in the comments section. Post your reviews with other book sites (ie. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Shelfari, etc.) and post the link in the comments section of the 50 States Reading Challenge. (will post January 1).
If you would like to join me in the challenge, click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post.

I actually don't expect to be able to complete this challenge, but I thought it would be fun to keep track of where I'm reading!
