Mapped: Most famous book set in each US state

Mapped: Most famous book set in each US state

Business Insider has put together my favorite map of the week — a breakdown of the most famous book set in each state. This map is a mix of modern and classic novels, so if you’re working on a summer reading list, check out the list below the map for inspiration.

The methodology of the book selection isn’t discussed in the article, so I’m sure some people will disagree. New Jersey’s book, for example, is somehow Drown by Junot Diaz and not Judy Bloom’s classic, Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret. I’m mostly joking.
