I received permission from @kgeslab to use and adapt her past swap ~ Map Your Reading 1st Quarter for the group. Since most of what I read is in the USA (though I realized that it's almost equal with books in the states versus out of the states or a dystopia area) I thought I'd make this for those of us who read mainly books in the USA.

For this swap, you will print out a map of the USA, with all the states individually marked, such as THIS MAP. Print it out on a standard 8x11/A4 page, making it as big as will fit.

Then for each book that you read, number the book in order that you read it, and put that number in the main state in which the book took place. If it covered several states, just use it once for the main state. On another piece of paper, write out the title of the book and author along with the number. You may write directly on the map, if you don't read very much, but if you think your map would be cluttered over the 3 months (this will be for the 1st Quarter of the year) then just do the numbering with the list on a separate paper.

I will make this open to International members, as many of you may read books within the States, but this swap is only for a USA map, no other maps.

Recap ~

  • Print out a map of the USA with states
  • Mark each book you read for the 1st Quarter (Jan, Feb, Mar) on the map
  • You can number the map with the list of books on another page, or you can write each book on the map itself.
  • Send to your partner after March ends

I hope you all will enjoy!

"Send to your partner after December ends"

I assume you mean April?

Yup! Sorry, thought I got everything changed after last time.

I just found this list online. Perhaps I will be able to fill in all the states this year!

Uh-oh. @Fyregypsy :( I typed up my list, so if someone needs an angel, all I have to do it recreate the map. Let me know....
