Trish has taken over the challenge hosting from Joy, of the perfect summer challenge for me. Since I am home in the summer, I leave a non-fiction book in the living room and try to read a chapter or section every day. This goes really well with the Dewey Decimal Challenge.
The Rules (unchanged from previous years)
1. Read 5 non-fiction books during the months of May - September, 2009 (please link your reviews on Mister Linky each month; Mister Linky can be found each month on this blog)
2. Read at least one non-fiction book that is different from your other choices (i.e.: 4 memoirs and 1 self-help)
3. If interested, please sign up below with the link to your NFF Challenge post (all choices do not need to be posted and may change at any time)
The list of possibilities:
- The Elegant Universe - Brian Greene
- The Seven Daughters of Eve - Bryan Sykes
- How the Scots Invented the Modern World
- I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This - Bob Newhart
I really like how this challenge has such a variety of books picked by the different participants.
1. Survivor - Mark Burnett 05/27
