Getting ready for the War Through the Generations challenge

I ordered three books for this challenge and they arrived yesterday, all were based on your recommendations and I'm looking forward to reading them. I thought it would be fun to share the books with you..and it gives you something to look forward to since I'll be reviewing them on my blog.



I've read a couple of really good reviews on this one, so expectations are high. Fingers crossed I'm not disappointed.










This one is going to be a buddy read with the War Through the Generations Challenge. Can't wait for that to start..I'm looking forward to discussing it with others.










This one has my interested because it's real letters sent from those serving our country to their loved ones at home. I think it might be hard to read, but at the same time something that needs to be read. We'll see what I think after I read it though.

I'll be reading The Things They Carried, too. And I dug out my old copy of Paco's Story. Serena and I will be considering dates for the group read soon, and once we have the info, we'll let everyone know.

I should be reading The Things They Carried soon myself. My son highly recommends it.

Glad to see both of you will be reading The Things They Carry too - it seems to be one of the more popular picks for the challenge so far.
