I want to plan a ride across the US for June and July and am looking for information, tips, route etc. Are there books on the subject, or websites? Any suggestions on where I should start my research?

There are many journals on Crazyguyonabike.com. The information is mind boggling.
Adventure Cycling's maps are highly recommended. In addition to the route, they give you the locations of motels, campgrounds, places to eat, and bike shops. I myself rode their Southern Tier Route, the shortest crossing. However it might be a bit too warm to do the route in June & July.

Thank you for all the great leads. I am very early in the planning stages but am really looking forward to this.
