I've been looking for a simple, general non-fiction challenge. I can't find one, so I decided to host my own. I am very much a fiction reader, but I did pick up several non-fiction books last year and I mostly enjoyed them. I need a little push to keep reading them, and I thought some of you might as well. So here's my Dewey Decimal Challenge.
Read any non-fiction book(s), adult or young adult. That's it. You can choose anything. Poetry? Yes. Memoirs? Yes. History? Yes. Travel? Yes. You get the idea? Absolutely anything that is classified as non-fiction counts for this challenge.
I always like levels in my challenges, so here are mine:
Dilettante--Read 1 non-fiction book.
This challenge will last from January 1 to December 31, 2011.
I am not limiting the challenge to bloggers. You can also link to a review you wrote on another site, such as GoodReads or LibraryThing.
I really was not going to sign up for any more challenges, but when I came across Jen's non-fiction challenge, I knew that I could not pass this one up! I've got a number of books on my shelf currently that I've been wanting to read that fit this category, so why not?!? I'm going to go with the Master level of 4 books.
- Blankets by Craig Thompson
- In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson
- Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
- Persopolis by Marjane Satrapi
- Persopolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi
Challenge Result: COMPLETED!!!
