War Through the Generation’s 2010 reading challenge will be the Vietnam War. The challenge will run from January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010.
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.
I LOVED the War Through the Generations Challenge last year when it focused on WWII. I’m excited for this challenge. I will be signing up at the Dip level but aiming for a Swim.
I have no idea what I’ll be reading yet. I think I’ll peruse my shelfs and see if I have anything that qualifies.
