!!! Happy 4th of July to all my US readers !!!

What better day than Independence Day to take a look at which US states I’ve been able to travel to in the most recent years? I confess that I haven’t officially been keeping track of the different states I visit during my bookish travels before 2022, but it seems like I mostly still mentioned at least a city in my Excel spreadsheet the previous three years and I was able to track down a rough travel summary for 2019, 2020 and 2021. 2022 isn’t complete still of course, but I’m adding the states I was able to visit so far on a map anyway… But first, it’s time for some fun facts!

# There were 4 states I’ve never visited in last four years #

# 23 states were so popular that I visited each year #

# There were 10 states I only visited once #

Now who’s ready to see some maps? I’ve made a separate map for each year (2019, 2020, 2021, 2022) and you can find a full list of the different states visited below each map.

2019: 31/50 STATES

Looks like 2020 was my best year so far when it comes to visiting as many states as possible! I do have to work on getting those states I have never visited before (or at least not in the last four years)… Any recommendations for books set in the following states (Arkansas, Delaware, Mississippi, North Dakota)
