Challenge Commitment Complete: World at War

World At War Reading Challenge
Host: Becky's Book Reviews
Sign up here
Duration: January - December 2019
Goal: Get at least one bingo! (more are welcome, of course!)

Go to Becky's post for links to book suggestions.

I committed to just one bingo to claim the challenge as complete--and have now claimed that bingo across the bottom of the card. I will keep on the lookout for more books to use in the challenge as I read this year. Any other bingos will be bonus!

Well done! Seems to be quite a variety of books.
