2020 Men Made In America Challenge

During the early 2000s late 90s Harlequin Published a series called the Men Made In America, with each author writing a romance from a different state.   I personally have on my shelves Connecticut and Delaware.  When I decided to collect them again, I used Fiction DB to find all the books I needed.

I made a concentrated effort to collect all of these books in 2018 with the plan of reading them in 2019, but that was too much considering all the other challenges I had going on.  I instead choose to put it off to this year.

Here I'm going to list all the books in the challenge and keep track of how I do. Since I have already read a few of the books it's not all 50 states. I'm aiming for 10 books read this year. There isn't any rush as these are all backlist books.

Books To Be Read: 48
Goal: 10
Read In 2019:
