  • Novels and States

    Something I read earlier triggered it.

    Attach a novel to the state. The most famous or the best or whatever.

    I'll start.


    Alabama ~ Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe (because To Kill a Mockingbird is too obvious)
    "There are four lights!"

  • #2
    Alaska ~ White Fang (because I suspect The Call of the Wild is more of a Canadian thing)
    "There are four lights!"

      Could we micromanage this idea to regions within a State?

      Otherwise

      Alaska - "Alaska" - Michner
      If it pays, it stays

        If you like. It's just a game.

                  It's not so much a rule as courtesy to those among us with OCD issues.

                    Arkansas...hmmm...I give up.
                    "Think as I think," said a man,
                    "Or you are abominably wicked;
                    You are a toad."
                    And after I had thought of it,
                    I said: "I will, then, be a toad." - Stephen Crane

                      Arkansas...The Wizard of Oz...

                      because we're not in Kansas anymore!

                        That's reaching. As if Arkansas would allow something like the Emerald city to exist.

                          A city with a conman behind glittery curtains where girls are prettified....come on Celeste...the reference is obvious!

                            Arkansas ~ I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (because The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn really only spends a short time there)

                              Hurry and get California, Boots! Ginger will nab Colorado and you will never get Connecticut!
