The goal of this challenge hosted by Book Journey is to try to read a book set in each of the 50 states of the US between January 1, 2013 - December 31, 2013. Sounds fun, right?
- (Fresno, CA) Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: a memoir of going home by Rhoda Janzen
- (San Francisco, CA) Mom and Me and Mom by Maya Angelou Colorado
Massachusetts - (Cambridge, MA) Expecting Adam: a true story of birth, rebirth, and everyday magic by Martha Beck
New Jersey - (Central New Jersey) Child of Mine by Judy M. Walters
New York - (upstate New York) Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman
Texas - (Cadillac, TX) The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee by Carolyn Brown
For the Foodies Read Challenge I hope to finish at the Sous-Chef level which is 9-13 books read between January 1, 2013 - December 31, 2013. A food book is a book which is centered around food and/or drinks. It can be a cookbook, a food biography or memoir, a nonfiction book focused around a specific food, wine, chef or restaurant. Also allowed is fiction in which food plays a major role.
1. The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee by Carolyn Brown
