comment
Our pals over at Business Insider recently published a map detailing the most popular books in each state.

Michigan, it seems, is best known for the 1993 novel The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides (the book was turned into a movie four years later).



Via BI:

"The Virgin Suicides" is a gripping tale of five beautiful yet eccentric sisters who commit suicide all in the same year in Gross Pointe, Mich. It is written from the perspective of an anonymous group of boys who are observant, infatuated, and endlessly struggling to explain the tragedy.

If you haven't yet read the book and want to, pick it up from your neighborhood bookstore. Then work your way across America with these other popular reads.
