US Civil War Reading Challenge 2011

As mentioned in my earlier posts, I'm participating in War Through the Generations reading challenge again next year - the topic is the US Civil War.  I've already chosen my first two books for the challenge - Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (which I read when I was in high school or before - 40-some years ago - so I don't remember it), and March by Geraldine Brooks (which is about the father of Little Women, and is why I'm reading Little Women again).  I'm sure I'll find lots more good books for the challenge.  I'm signing up at the Dip Level, which is 3-5 books.  I can always read more, but I do have 3 other challenges I've sign up for.  If you'd like to join me, you can sign up here.

I haven't read Little Women since I was a child...I'm wondering if it's time to revisit it. Sounds like the two books you've chosen will complement each other nicely.

So glad you're joining us again next year. I knew you'd be excited that it's going to be about the Civil War.
