Susan (Scoutmomskf) | 1327 comments 2017 Men in Uniform Challenge
January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017


Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? They’re hot, resourceful, and they’re always well equipped. And If you like reading books featuring men in uniform, then this is the reading challenge for you!

Reading Challenge Details:

Runs January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017 You can join any time.

The goal is to read as many novels that feature men in uniform as you’d like. It can be a policeman, firefighter, paramedic, doctor, veterinarian, mechanic, military, 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. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down. Remember, the idea is to challenge yourself.

Books can be any format (print, ebook, audio).

Books can be any genre (romance, m/m romance, fiction, non-fiction, mystery/thriller, etc.).

Novellas that are 100 pages in length (give or take), as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.

Levels:

Sergeant: read 1–10 men in uniform novels
Lieutenant: read 11–20 men in uniform novels
Captain: read 21–30 men in uniform novels
Chief: read 31-40 men in uniform novels
General: 41-50 men in uniform novels
Chairman, Joint Chiefs: 51+ men in uniform novels

I like to see what others read too. I find some new books. I remember asking if anyone wanted to take over her challenges. She was hosting a lot of them. It's much harder to host challenges outside of GR. Are you hosting any others?

I accept detectives because they are law enforcement. I consider their badges to be their uniforms, same as an undercover cop.

I don't think so, since I don't think they are truly officers of the law. I think of bounty hunters as people like Stephanie Plum and Ranger ;-)

Congratulations! Check back in January if you are interested, as I expect to do this again next year.

Yours leans heavily on athletes, mine tends more toward law enforcement. Something about liking romantic suspense, I would guess ;-)
