Google+ The Introverted Reader: Nonfiction Reading Challenge 2014

Nonfiction Reading Challenge 2014

Wednesday, January 1, 2014




Please link your reviews on the review link-up page.

The Challenge:  Read any non-fiction book(s), adult or young adult. That's it. You can choose anything. 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

Explorer--Read 6-10

Seeker--Read 11-15

Master--Read 16-20

This challenge will last from January 1 to December 31, 2014. 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.

Different this year: I'll have a separate post with a linky for reviews. I'll keep a permanent link to both posts in my sidebar. That will be easier to keep track of which links are reviews and which are sign up posts.

Use Mr. Linky to sign up below. I hope you'll join me!

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop's, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site. My opinions are completely my own.

  11. I've set myself a challenge to read autobiographies and biographies this year so this fits right in! My first time as part of a challenge and the first time blogging. I have already read my first one but was in 2013 so doesn't count for this challenge, but you're welcome to read my review anyway!

  37. Hi! Would you please answer at my blog to ensure I see it: is poetry 'non-fiction'? I'm unsure. It is made up but it might be about real things. Carolyn [ "Ethereal" | "My Kind Of Mystery" | "Gentle Spectrums" ] http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/riedelchallengesfaq/
