In my bored time, I decided to look into this. It turns out there are a few states that I have not sent my books to:

Hawaii - I understand. Who has time to read in paradise? ;)

Alaska - Now, that surprises me. Surely the winter will free up plenty of time for books. LOL

Montana - Same as Alaska

Utah - Maybe I don't offer the right kind of books :)

New Mexico - No New Age books on my shelf :)

Kansas

Mississippi

New Hampshire

P.S: Please read all of my comments tongue in cheek. I don't mean to offend anyone, just stating the normal stereotypes.

What about you? I even sent one to Puerto Rico.

133 received - 184 sent.

Fun, Fun.  Actually my idea of paradise is to have a stack of books, lots of snacks and all the time in the world to read.  Knowing me, I'd probably do just that in Hawaii. - I'm not much of a beach person.

I haven't sent tons of books, but still on the list is Alaska, Maine, Louisiana (any Slidell High Alums out there?) and Mississippi.

How do you figure this out without going through every transaction?

If you go to your Transaction Archive - Books I mailed heading, there should be a "Map" link. The map will show you what states yours books have traveled to.

I looked there and didn't see i-I'll look again. -duh!  Right in front of my face. I swear I did not see that link when I looked earlier.

I am only missing Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Montana, Indiana and Wyoming.   I know I have sent books Hawaii for games before.

Hmm... now I'm revealing my lack of skill in reading the US map...  I think South Dakota, New Mexico, and Alaska.

Mary, if you go to your transaction archive at the top left (above your list) there's a box with Books Received(in blue) and Books Mailed(in yellow) below both, in the same box is the word Map underlined and in blue.

I'm only missing New Mexico, Alaska and Puerto Rico.

You and me both, Fedora!  I wish PBS would label the states, because my geography of anything east of about CO is rusty!  Here's what I think I am missing- assuming that I am right about which state is which:

Idaho, Wyoming, Oklahoma, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Kansas and Hawaii

I have mailed one book to each Alaska and Puerto Rico, and both books were received surprisingly quickly!  I have mailed books one state away to CA and had them take longer.  And though I haven't mailed to Hawaii, I have received a book from there, and it came a lot sooner than I had expected it to.

I have yet to get an APO or FPO address from here.  On Bookmooch I've mailed to Cypress, France a couple of times, Italy, Greece, Romania and the Netherlands.  I changed it to USA only because I had a lot of pts racked up there. I might change it back but we'll have to see.

My list is lacking:

North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, DC, and my home state of Delaware.

I'll be looking at those of you who need to add Oklahoma to your list! ;)

Wow! I've mailed 420 books and received 331--hmm, I wonder if my husband has noticed that?

Not mailed to: New Mexico, Wisconsin, the Dakotas, Idaho and Montana - oh,and Hawaii. I think that's it. How can you tell in the northeast where all those little dots cover up all those tiny states??

I'll be checking out the lists of anyone needing to mail books to Louisiana....!

ETA: hmmmm, I see New Mexico and the Dakotas on a lot of lists in this thread - what's up with that?? Maybe they don't read romance in those states? I have a friend in New Mexico who is a member, so I know there are readers there!

and I don't have Puerto Rico or APO addresses in my list either, forgot to count those.

ETA x2! OK, maybe I don't have Delaware or Rhode Island - I really can't tell... I hovered over the dots, and it tells you the city/state and I didn't get Delaware or RI in any hovering.
