Challenge Complete: Where Are You Reading?

Hosted at Book Dragon's Lair

This one was all about places. There's one about states but this one counts cities, counties, and fictional locations too. Read a book set in a location for each letter of the alphabet. West Virginia only counts for W, Bowling Green only counts for B, but the Pern series by Anne McCaffrey that is on a fictional planet counts as P ;-) 

I have finally completed my bookish travels--well, at least enough to cover the alphabet. I'm sure I'll be hitting more fictional places before the year is up. Thanks, for hosting! Hope we'll don our traveling clothes for another trip next year.
