2011 Where Are You Reading Final Counts

Here it is!  The final counts of where I read for 2011.  I had a lot of fun with this.  I did not read intentionally… just wherever, but it was interesting to see where it all landed on the map.  Some states, apparently make great settings for books.  😀

Books that were “out of this world” or dystopia types that gave no clue where they were from are not on the map… or are any books that mention no where they are located such as Small Town Sinners, The Black Shard, and Cut.

I missed 13 states but look forward to seeing how 2012 will turn out!  Its fun to get excited about the setting of a book and my book club laughs when we are talking books and I ask what state it is in 😛

  1. My post will go up later today. I didn’t total by state though,need to look at those figures and maybe add them to my post and will do it for sure in 2012.

  2. i am way too lazy to do something like that but it was fun to look at!

  3. If I were keeping track, I would have a lot in New York, also.

    I also read a lot of Southern novels….

  4. You might want to try the Reading around the USA on Goodreads. That was a lot of fun! Happy New Year and happy reading.

  5. I did good with this for awhile and then kind of pooped out on it! Ack.

    Wishing you a wonderful 2012 filled with 5 star reads!

  6. You really traveled the globe in 2011. Hope 2012 is a whirlwind year as well.

  7. It’s fun to see where you’ve been in books – I hope 2012 brings you as many armchair travel adventures 🙂
