Where are You Reading? Challenge 2014

ChallegeHello fellow book nerds!

I’m a girl who loves a challenge so here I go again. I’m going to compete in the Where Are You Reading Challenge organized on Sheila on Book Journey. The challenge is to read a book from every state, but I’m more interested in seeing where books I normally read are set. I hope you choose to participate as well! I’ll be updating this page for each book I read to fill in the states and foreign countries. Ping-back here if you decide to join and be sure to link to Sheila’s challenge page as well.
