ALASKA stop on the 2013 Reading Road Trip + Giveaway


Welcome to the Alaska stop on the 2013 Reading Road Trip. Hosted by Britta at I Like These Books and Hafsah at IceyBooks, the Reading Road Trip is a fun way to learn about the different states and the books about and authors from each.

So why is the Florida girl hosting Alaska? Because if there was one state in the whole country that I'd love to visit, it is Alaska. The cold. I would love the cold!

A few facts:
  • The Capital is Juneau
  • Was purchased from Russia for approximately two cents per acre!
  • Became a state in 1959
  • 663,300 square miles
  • Has a population of 731,449
  • The current governor is Sean Parnell
In searching for facts about Alaska, I found that there are a lot of hockey players AND porn stars from that state. The hockey players I get....the porn stars because it is really cold? Just sayin'. 

Giveaway! Winner's choice of a book set in or by an author from Alaska. Open internationally to anyplace that the Book Depository ships to. One entry for stopping by. There are extra entries for those of you who follow me on Twitter and/or Bloglovin' or am my friend on Goodreads.
