About This Quiz

While people that live in America do have a whole lot of things in common, everyone knows that people in different states act a little differently from one another. I mean seriously, would you expect a person that lived in New York to have the same vibe as someone who lives in Lousiana? Of course, you wouldn't. 

But what about books? Of course, people read in every state in the country but does everyone across the country read the same sort of books as each other, or does the state one lives in really influence what type of book they read?  If you live in California are all your books memoirs written by the stars or books on how to surf?  If you live in New York City, are you books all about legal dramas or books about how to make money? If you live in Maine are all your books either about fishing or horror novels? Steven King is from Maine after all. If you live in Arizona are all your books about the Wild West?  There is only one way to test our theory and see if works. Take this quiz, and we will try and guess what state you live in.
