Is there a state on your want-to-visit list that you haven’t quite made it to yet? Or maybe you enjoy seeing references to the geography and cities of the place you call home. Maybe you’ve even taken up a challenge to read one book set in each of the 50 states (a fun goal for a year!). Either way, this handy list will help you plan your reading road trip.
Here are a list of Bethany House books and their settings (published between May 2014 and June 2015). Enjoy!
I have this map up in my office marked with author names. Print out your own here.
