Yippee! New challenge out there, sponsored by Joy at Thoughts of Joy, that I can handle! Read five non-fiction books between the months of May-September.
In five months I will probably read twenty books easy. BUT, here comes the problem, I can't predict what titles they will be.
First, I get ideas from two great non-fiction bloggers: Rick at Ricklibrarian & Nonanon at NRA. Second, I order star reviewed non-fictions from Booklist, Library Journal, and Choice. Third, I write for the newspapers and usually pick books along topical/holiday ideas. Lastly, the newer the book the better, and since this challenge calls for an up-front list, new books may not be included.
Here goes my list...
- The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan
- Manhunt by James Swanson
- Mockingbird by Charles J. Shields
- Oracle Bones by Peter Hessler
- Things I Didn't Know by Robert Hughes
