Reading through the states

I was searching through my email for something, and came across something entirely different.  From a now-defunct homeschool group I was part of, someone had compiled a list of books by state (their child was reading though the states that way).  Neat idea.   And so I don’t forget it, I decided to throw it up on here for later.  We already have a respectable number of these books, and they *are* good books.
