50 State Reading Challenge

I've completed the 50 State Reading Challenge I started in January. It was a fun project and it's pushed me into reading many books that I might not otherwise have picked up and looked more for the setting than the story when choosing a book.
Note: I've included Washington DC although it's not technically a state

AlabamaTo Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Delaware - The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez
Nebraska - The Children’s Blizzard by David Laskin
NevadaThe Cat and the King of Clubs by Carole Nelson Douglas
North DakotaThe Beet Queen by Louise Erdich
OregonRamona the Brave by Beverly Cleary
Utah - To Helvetica and Back by Paige Shelton
Washington- Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio
Washington DC – The Street Lawyer by John Grisham
West Virginia - The Midwife of Hope River by Patricia Harman

congrats. That's an excellent accomplishment and quite a varied list. Now is there a state you want to visit based on a book?
Onward to a world challenge - conquer it all!

That is impressive. I am making little progress at all. I either read books set in the UK, or other countries, or in states I have already covered (New York, California, Texas).
