Happy Monday morning dear readers! As always, I come bearing a quick reprieve from the Monday morning drag, which hopefully isn’t too overbearing for you today. This week, I give you a neat little map done up by Business Insider that was making the rounds on various social media sites last week, which documents the most famous book set in each of the fifty states in the United States.
There has been a bit of controversy surrounding this map since Business Insider didn’t release what factors qualify a book to be deemed “most famous,” so people have been weighing in on what they think are the actual most famous books in each state. For example, many have cried foul over the fact that David Foster Wallace’s The Broom of the System was named as Ohio’s most famous book instead of Toni Morrison’s classic Beloved. Do any of these titles surprise you, dear readers? Were any of your favorites not included? Discuss!
