Books by State: Georgia

The first item on the Better World Books 2016 Reading Challenge is to read a book set in your home state or region. Also, the summer vacation season is quickly approaching, which means you may be visiting new locales soon. What better way to prepare than by reading something about or set in that place? If physical travel isn’t on the menu, take some literary vacations to any place you’d like to go. Throughout the summer, we’ll be posting books set in each state. (If you live outside the United States, comment with your country or region and we’ll try to round up some books for place).
