2012 Where Are You Reading Challenge

2012 Where Are You Reading Challenge?
Sponsored by: Book Journey

So how do you decide what state a book is categorized under?
1.  In a fiction read it would be the State or Country that the book spends the most time in.  (Ie. If your main character is from Wisconsin but the book is all about his/her time in college in California – the books should categorize under California….)
2.  Non fiction reads categorize  in whatever State or Country it is about 
3.  If the book goes from one state to another… go with the state that most of the time is spent.

  1. I read book one, Vision in White and then quickly downloaded Bed of Roses. These are the best Nora Roberts books I've read in years. Such a great story but what really stands out is her fantastic narration. I felt like I was right there in the middle of the room watching everything play out. The dialogue between the characters was right on.
