I wasn't sure if I was going to host this challenge again. I just don't feel that I read enough non-fiction to be hosting it, but since I still don't see anyone hosting a general non-fiction challenge, it's once more into the breach for me!
The levels last year seemed to be entirely too easy for some of you, so I've revamped them a bit. Don't worry; I've still kept the lower numbers.
The 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 1-5 non-fiction books
This challenge will last from January 1 to December 31, 2012. You can sign up anytime throughout the year.
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.
Crossovers with other challenges are acceptable, and feel free to read your books in any format you like.
I'm signing up at the Seeker level. I'll track my progress here.
