November Reading Challenge
It will soon be the month of November, and I have been thinking about it a lot lately. In Canada, November is the month that Remembrance Day falls in, being November 11th. So, I got to thinking, I might do a reading challenge where I read books set in World War I and World War II. I can't read only that, though, as I need some variety in my reading, but I do own a few books that would work.
I am just going to choose three to begin with. I know I own more, I just have to search the ole to be read pile. I am almost done The Bronze Horseman, which will finish up my October Reading Challenge. It would also count for this November one.
I also plan to read:
Tatiana and Alexander - Paullina Simons
Flags of our Fathers - James Bradley
The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
Then for non-fiction, I found a second hand copy of
We Stand on Guard: An Illustrated History of the Canadian Army by John Marteinson.
I am still going to look through my to be read pile for other world war novels, but this is my challenge. Anyone else out there that feels like joining in, feel free.
