Men In Uniform Challenge 2011

January 1 - December 31, 2011

The Book Vixen is hosting the 2011 Men In Uniform Challenge. She writes:

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? I sure do and I love reading about them too. They’re hot, resourceful and they’re always well equipped ;) So I’ve decided to mix some sexy men in uniform into my reading agenda for 2011.
Here are the guidelines for the challenge:
  • Books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count towards the challenge.
  • You can join at anytime – Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read as many novels that involve men in inform as you’d like. It can be a policeman, firefighter, paramedic, Army, Navy, Marine Corp., etc. – As long as the leading man wears some sort of uniform, it counts. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you.
  • Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them.
  • It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “Men in Uniform Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on Book Vixen's wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.
  1. Sergeant – Read 1–5 men in uniform novels
  2. Lieutenant – Read 6–10 men in uniform novels
  3. Captain – Read 11–15 men in uniform novels
  4. Chief– Read 16+ men in uniform novels
