6. You don't have to have a reading list ready to participate in the challenge but please let me know which level you're doing

7. Sign up here

There will be a prize at the end of the challenge. If you complete the challenge and write a wrap-up post (or wrap-up comment), you're eligible.

I've decided to particpate at the Sergeant level and will be reading the follwing books:

1. The Disagreement by Nick Taylor
2. The Slaves' War: The Civil War in the Words of Former Slaves by Andrew Ward
