Have you seen this book list?

 Most Famous Books Set In Every State_02

I have been on vacation this week and have been deeply engrossed in Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I will have a review of it before the weekend is over. 

I saw a very cool article about the most famous book from each state on the Business Insider website. Have you seen this list? How many have you read? Does the book for your state strike you as the best from your state? Is it indeed the most famous? I have read 28 of them. Half way across the country. How about you?
