    Well, I think you can skip any that just don't fit with your reading – and I figure if you're from a small place, you can pick a book that takes place in a larger city near you!

    I have seen this challenge as well and thought about participating. It definitely looks interesting and I cannot wait to read your updates. I am sure I could not find a book that takes place in my hometown. But I need to find some other books that fit the criteria.
