What’s New at War Through the Generations?

First, I wanted to say thank you for all the support you’ve all given me since the passing of my grandfather.  It has helped.

Second, you may have noticed that I’ve only read 8 of the 11 books I had hoped to read for the Vietnam War Challenge at War Through the Generations, and that I haven’t posted a review for that challenge since July.   I hope to have some additional reviews for this challenge read by the end of the year, so stay tuned.

Third, there have been some reviews that I’ve neglected to post due to other obligations, but in the past week, Anna and I have been very diligent about pre-scheduling review snippets, book review links on the book reviews page, new books to the recommended reading list, and guest posts.  We hope to continue this trend through the end of the challenge.

In light of that, I wanted to draw everyone’s attention to a recent Vietnam War guest post from author Phyllis Zimbler Miller about where she was during the war.  We’d love to hear your thoughts about where you or your loved ones may have been during that time as well, so feel free to comment.

Thanks to everyone participating in the challenge for their patience and understanding about the lack of updates . . . it has been a rough year, and I take the blame for this one since the Vietnam War was supposed to be my year to take care of the updates.


  1. Serena I’m so sorry to hear about your grandfather! Hugs to you and your family. I’m sure you’ll catch up with all of your blogging goals but don’t give yourself a hard time about that. You’ll get to it when you can.

  2. No need to apologize! Heck, I’ve only read 4. Plus, you have had a lot going on, sometimes blogging needs to be on the back burner when life happens. If everyone is like me, then they are still enjoying the books and the challenge and anxious to learn what war we are reading about next year.

    • We’re still working out final details on next year’s challenge, but keep a look out for an announcement in the coming months.

  3. Don’t be so hard on yourself. I’ve only read 8 books for the challenge, too, but don’t forget all those movie reviews you posted!!
