2015 Men in Uniform Challenge

January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015

 As Brianna at The Book Vixen says: Who doesn't love a man in uniform? I sure do! And I love reading about them too. They're hot, resourceful and they're always well-equipped. Do you like reading books featuring men in uniform too? If so, then this is the reading challenge for you!

  • Sergeant: read 1–5 men in uniform novels
  • Lieutenant: read 6–10 men in uniform novels
  • Captain: read 11–15 men in uniform novels
  • Chief: read 16+ men in uniform novels
 I joined this challenge for the first time last year.  I realized that with all the murder mysteries I read that surely to goodness I could collect enough policemen to enter at the most basic level. And I was right.  So that's what I'm going to do again this year.  If I find that I can round up even more of those handsome men in uniform, then I'll ask my commanding officer for a promotion and will try for a higher level.  But my basic challenge will be complete when I earn my stripes for:

Sergeant: read 1-5 men in uniform novels
