Where Am I Reading 2014

4 This is my fourth year for BookJourney's Where Are You Reading? challenge, and it's probably my favorite challenge. I like the way I end up reading all sorts of crazy things, unlike challenges where I just gloat over all the things I'd read anyway (although those are fun too). And I even like my tradition of panicking at New Years and locking myself up in my room for the frantic final books.

I'm putting states I'm currently reading but haven't reviewed yet in italics, which will matter during the end game when I'm frantically searching for the last few.

P.S.  World 66 has a nifty map that tracks where you've been.  I'm tracking where my books have been:
create your own personalized map of the USA or write about it on the open travel guide

And globally they offer three choices: Been There,  Liked To Go, and Lived There. I mark the USA as Lived There (deep red), because that's where I live, and any country I've read a book in since I started tracking gets marked Liked To Go (grey). Books I read this year get ticked Been There (bright red). So I try to read books from all over, but now I can track which places I'm revisiting a lot (New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, Japan, for a few).

You could read Curtain Call Caper set in Virgiia Beach, to get Virginia in. Three Times Lucky is a fabulous read for the south.
