"Literature is often a source of state pride, with a vast array of novels set in and around each of the great 50 states. With this list, you can tour the entire country—without ever leaving home." —Jennifer Brozak for Reader's Digest
And since literature is a great source of state pride, I hope Reader's Digest can forgive me if I have disagreed with some of their choices (see below). Please leave a comment if you disagree as well and let us know what you think is the most iconic book set in your state. Enjoy traveling the country from the comfort of your couch!
