LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Pick any 5 books (or more if you care to, LOL!) and add the location! If it's a large well-known city, use that as the tag. Otherwise use state, country, or other.

PLEASE check the spelling of any tags you create!

For example: Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries could be New Jersey. The Maggody mysteries could be Arkansas.

Post the tags you've done here if you like! :)

ETA: Also, remember that if you use a comma, you'll get separate tags. So if you typed "Paris, TX" you'll get two tags, one "Paris" and the other "TX". So we might want to choose Paris - TX format for city/state, perhaps?

I couldn't find this topic this morning!  It must have slipped down a page or two.   I've done about 6 or 8 books so far.  Who else has been working on this?

I have been for a litle bit. It's been a week of survival here! I'm going to label Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books New Jersey today. :)

And why not do the Stephanie Plum series "Trenton" rather than "New Jersey"?  That seems more specific.

I'd do Trenton NJ because if I just saw Trenton I would have no clue where that was since I'm in Texas...ok, so I've read the books and I might know but not necessarily.  I think putting city and state would be a good idea

I also did Lee Charles Kelly's books and Leann Sweeney's books.  I'm sure I did a few others but those are what I remember off the top of my head!

This is actually a really great idea. I've been doing it with books set in Paris and the like.
