    And this last challenge is merely one I made up on a whim. As someone who doesn't get to travel much, I wanted to trac the amount of places I went in a year via a book! So, here's the states and if I can find any books set in other countries I will add those as well! It just felt silly to have the name of my blog be "Take Me Away..." and never look at the places I'm going away too! So, if you care to join, go ahead, but make sure to credit me! You can use the graphic or make your own! Happy reading!
