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
