This series is really showing me how concentrated my reads are to a handful of states:(
I have had American Gods for a while, but can't seem to get started on it.

American Gods was set in Colorado? huh.

I've read some Hunter S.Thompson but that's it from your list.

BookQuoter - It's made me realize that I read a TON of books set in England.

Care - Parts of American Gods are in Colorado, but not all of it. Funny fact, my parents lived in Colorado for awhile in the 1970s and they lived next door to Thompson.

wow - he'd be a trip for a neighbor!
