Even though the WWII reading challenge has ended, we’ll continue adding to the book reviews and recommended reading pages.  We hope you’ll continue to use them as a resource.

Also, stay tuned for the post-challenge giveaways…and those of you waiting for books from BBAW, they’ll be coming you’re way very soon.  I’m a bit behind in mailing out giveaway copies, and I apologize for the delay.
