Nothing new for September for me.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

I'm thinking that if we do this next year, I'll include the title of the book and a star-rating. I was looking at my list and can't remember which book I read in some particular state and for some odd reason that bothers something OCD in me.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Will try for nine countries and twenty-one states. I checked my last year's list and found those were set in eight countries and twenty states, so I will make an effort to get one more of each.

I'm going to go for both.

I will try for 5 different countries for The World challenge, and instead of picking a set number for the 50 States, I will just try to do as many as I can.

In this challenge, you can "travel" the world, or even just the 50 States, through books.
Just keep track of what country or state your book takes place in; nonfiction books count too, and the U.S. can be counted as one of the countries if you are doing the "World" traveling.
If a book takes place in more than one country or state, only one counts; for example, if your story takes place in Missouri and Michigan, you can only pick one state for that book. (Those were the rules when we did this challenge on Goodreads. You can use books of any genre. It will be fun at the end of the year to see how many places your books have taken you!

You can choose just to do the 50 States or The World, or both for this challenge.
