War Through the Generations Challenge WWI - 2012

Challenge Summary:

Rules:

- This year you have options when reading your fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, etc. with the WWI as the primary or secondary theme.

- Books can take place before, during, or after the war, so long as the conflicts that led to the war or the war itself are important to the story.

- Books from other challenges count so long as they meet the above criteria.

  •  Dip: Read 1-3 books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme. 
  • Wade: Read 4-10 books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme. 
  • Swim: Read 11 or more books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme. 
Additionally, we’ve decided that since there are so many great movies out there about WWI, you can substitute or add a movie or two to your list this year and have it count toward your totals. You can decide which books you’d like to read right away, or you can choose them during the course of the challenge.
Check out the Recommended Reading: WWI page for suggestions.

Final Thoughts

I thought about attempting the next level, as I have at least two books on my TBR list that would fit the challenge, but this is the first time I finished the challenge, and I'm not sure I'll have enough time to get to the books. At least this way I know I've finished the challenge. I'm not sure I have a favourite book for this challenge, but I did enjoy participating in the challenge and exploring new authors.

Thanks for joining the challenge. We hope you'll consider the mid-year read-a-long of A Farewell to Arms.
