If you’re looking to explore the 50 states without leaving your home, there are certain ways to go about it. In addition to virtual tourism, you can go on adventures from home through the pages of a good book.
Consider the large canon of books set in different parts of the United States. Personal loan company NetCredit put together a map highlighting the most popular book set in every state.
From classics like “To Kill A Mockingbird” (Alabama) and “Little Women” (Massachusetts) to more modern picks like “The Lovely Bones” (Pennsylvania) and “Ready Player One” (Ohio), there are many options for those with different literary tastes.
NetCredit put together the map by compiling a lengthy list of famous books explicitly set in certain states and then comparing their Goodreads ratings, number of ratings and number of reviews. The team also shared the most popular quote from each book based on the passages most frequently highlighted by Kindle readers.
