The 2010 War Through the Generations challenge will be Vietnam War Reading Challenge.
Here`s how it works:
This year you have options when reading your fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, etc. with the Vietnam War as the primary or secondary theme.Books can take place before, during, or after the war. Books from other challenges count so long as they meet the above criteria.
Dip: Read 5 books in any genre with the Vietnam War as a primary or secondary theme.
Wade: Read 6-10 books in any genre with the Vietnam War as a primary or secondary theme.
Swim: Read 11 or more books in any genre with the Vietnam War as a primary or secondary theme.
*Participants anywhere in the world are eligible for most prizes in the post-challenge drawing!**
*Prize drawings will be for participants finishing either their personal goal or five books.
*Participants can always read more than their initial goals, and even if you sign up for 11+, but read just five, you officially completed the challenge and are eligible for prizes.
You can decide which books you’d like to read right away, or you can choose them during the course of the challenge. Check out the Recommended Reading: Vietnam War page for suggestions.
Anna and I wanted to try something a little different this year, and we thought that it would be fun to do a group review here on War Through the Generations midway through the challenge on Paco’s Story by Larry Heinemann. We will warn you that this book can be quite graphic and disturbing, so it is not for the faint of heart.
