I do not remember reading anything set in my town. I do not remember reading anything set specifically in my country either ;-). With the exception of stuff written by our national writers. For the last 20 years I read almost exclusively in English, and English writing writers do not usually set the books in my insignificant European country, let alone town.
I do enjoy reading books set in places where I have traveled. It gives me feeling like I know the place better than other [non-resident, obviously] readers.
The most recent example. While I was in USA I happened to read some stuff I have purchased (long ago with a huge discount) from our resident Scott Nicholson. Some of the books were set in the general area where I was staying and I liked that.
