  • October: The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter for WWII.
  • December: Going After Cacciato by Tim O’Brien for the Vietnam War.

We hope that you’ll be joining us for at least one or more of these read-a-longs in 2014.


  1. I’m so looking forward to the movie of Monuments Men!

  2. I think we chose some good books for the readalongs…I hope!

  3. I’m putting Stella Bain on my calendar. I’m not very good with challenges but with readalongs I’m much more successful.

  4. I gave my husband The Monuments Men as a gift and he has been raving about it to everyone he knows. Might have to steal it back and read along with you guys. 🙂

  5. Beth Hoffman says

    “I don’t think I’m allowed
    To kill something
    Because I am

    Amen to that last stanza. Amen!
