Where Am I Reading 2021

With Helpful Suggestions at the bottom.

Once again I want to track where I'm reading this year, and once again I'm too lazy to set up a google map for it. The list is an easier way to see which states I've been hitting and which I've been missing. I think I'll bold the ones I missed in 2020. And then I'll track which countries I'm reading in (sometimes it's a guess, since countries in the past had different borders), and I'm also giving myself suggestions in case I want to seek out a location.

I belatedly found an Official Challenge for this: 2021 Literary Escapes Challenge. I should wander over there to get some good ideas for my missing states.
