It's a wrap! Well, actually, it's a bit of a failure but I'm going to go ahead and throw in the towel on the War Through the Generations: Vietnam challenge because I've got quite the lovely stack by my reading spot and I don't think I'm going to finish up any more Vietnam reads in the coming 28 days or so. That doesn't mean I won't continue to read Vietnam books. I've still got Semper Cool and Matterhorn waiting for me to read them. To be honest, after a while the challenge buttons in the sidebar start to annoy me if I'm not succeeding.
So, here's what I managed to read for the challenge:
1. The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
2. The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli
3. A Hundred Feet Over Hell by Jim Hooper
Of the three, The Things They Carried and A Hundred Feet Over Hell are a pretty close tie. I liked The Lotus Eaters, but The Things They Carried was so hauntingly beautiful that it just can't be beaten and A Hundred Feet Over Hell was a roller-coaster emotional ride.
Next up? I am not currently signed up for any challenges in 2011, but I'm considering creating my own One Shelf At a Time Self-Challenge, in which I choose one of my personal shelves and work my way through it.
