War Through the Generations Challenge 2010: Vietnam War

2010 is right around the corner.  Have you signed up for your reading challenges yet?  I know you’ve seen some of mine, which I posted over Thanksgiving break.  Take a look if you’re interested.

But today isn’t about any old reading challenge.  Today is my announcement unveiling the 2010 War Through the Generations Reading Challenge on the Vietnam War.

In 2009, Anna and I were surprised by the number of participants.  Many of you already have finished your goals.  Don’t worry there are still prizes to be had.  So, congrats to you, and I hope you’ll think about joining us for the new year.

Sign ups for the 2010 Vietnam War Reading Challenge are up NOW.  Click here to find out the various reading goal options.

Sign up officially using this Google Form link.  We’d love to have you.  The minimum is 5 books in 12 months, and you know you want to see your name on this list.

If you’re not sure about joining because you haven’t seen many or read many Vietnam War fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or other books, you’re in luck!  We’re compiling a list for you.  Check out the recommended reading.

Signups for this challenge are ongoing throughout 2010, so you have plenty of time to decide based on books you have lined up or come across on a whim.

For those who sign up, we have a bunch of buttons for you to use on your blog, but Vietnam War specific buttons are still in the works.  Keep your eyes on the War Through the Generations blog for other announcements.

The only things I have left to talk about are the fun group reading project we have planned this year with Paco’s Story by Larry Heinemann, which we hope to have read and reviewed with everyone who participates midway through the challenge, and my own reading goals.

Ok, I guess I just did tell you about Paco’s Story!

So here are my reading goals; I will read 11 or more books throughout 2010 in which the Vietnam War is a primary or secondary theme.
