Wrap-Up of Where Are You Reading Challenge 2015-16

Well, I still didn't finish all the states. I did learn how some states are harder to find books set in, and the preponderance of certain states when it comes to settings, particularly New York and California.
I will still try to find books in the states I haven't yet read (I have a book set in Delaware out from the library right now!), but will close this challenge out officially.
