INFOGRAPHIC: 50 States of Literature

A tour of the United States through books!

If you’re the type of person who’s always dreamed of hopping in a VW van and road tripping the United States, but lack the time (or money), the folks over at Books on the Wall may have a solution for you: read your way across the country! They put together an infographic that features a book per state, and the collection of recommendations certainly renders a colorful picture of the fifty nifty. (Not sure all Coloradoans would choose King’s horror novel The Shining, to represent them, but it’s a part of the imaginative journey!)
