SIGN UP: 2011 Men in Uniform Reading Challenge

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 ;) So I’ve decided to mix some sexy men in uniform into my reading agenda for 2011.

Men in Uniform Reading Challenge

Men in Uniform Reading Challenge
hosted by The Book Vixen


  • Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011(books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime – Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read as many novels that involve men in inform as you’d like. It can be a policeman, firefighter, paramedic, Army, Navy, Marine Corp., etc. – As long as the leading man wears some sort of uniform, it counts. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to this post so readers can join the challenge too.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “Men in Uniform Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on my wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.


     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  

ETA: Erica found this list of Military books on Goodreads.

  2. Sounds great!!

  3. I definitely plan to sign up. I'll be back later. Men in uniform make me drool!

  4. I love this idea! I'm in! There's just something about a man in uniform, isn't there! I'm going to put the icon on my blog, investigate the Library thing to list the books and then off to find books :) I wonder if I can use "uniform" as a search criteria on PBS???

  5. I am going to sign up too but first I need to get some books for it!!

  6. Still not sure if I'll be able to do this challenge and was considering what type of books I could look at. I found this list on goodreads that might help people.

  7. Erica - Thank you for the list link! I've added it to the post :)

  8. excellent theme! ma'am, yes ma'am ;-D

  9. I have a question. I'm braziliam, do I have to post a review in English, or just a comment telling a read whatever book that was?
    Loved the idea!!!

  10. Juliana - it is not required of you to post a review for the books you read for this challenge. Just make a list of the books you read for this challenge. If you choose to write a review, you can do so in any language.

  11. Hey Book Vixen! Will you put the review link up for April? Thanks. :)

  12. Quick question...what about former military characters...they used to be in uniform and it is an integral part of their character??

  13. noumena12 - the leading man should be wearing a uniform...
