Google+ The Introverted Reader: Nonfiction Reading Challenge 2016

Nonfiction Reading Challenge 2016

Sunday, December 27, 2015

This is the sign-up page. Please go here to link your reviews.

It's time to sign up for my Nonfiction Reading Challenge again!

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, 2016. 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 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!

  1. I'm back again. LOVE this challenge!

  2. Going for the Master level & beyond--I love non-fiction........

  3. I'm going for the Master Level. I need more non-fiction in my life.

  4. I'm new to this challenge, but I'm hoping to read and review a new nonfiction book every other week or so, which looks like the Master level. Since I'm the head of a local chapter of the Nonfiction Authors Association here in San Diego, I wanted to challenge myself to read and promote more nonfiction authors, and share them with the group. Hopefully I can also read some local authors' books!

  5. Looking forward to some serious non-fiction reading and discovering some great new reads.

  6. I am signing up again this year for Master level. Thanks for hosting.

  7. Need to read more nonfiction--signing up at Explorer level with a friend!

  8. Excited to do this one again!! Signing up as an Explorer.

  9. I hope I'm not too late to sign up! I think I'll try Explorer level.

  10. I'm going to aim for Explorer level. I'm really looking forward to reading more non fiction.

  11. This comment has been removed by the author.

  12. I'm signing up for Dilettante level. Hope I can read more nonfiction books this year.

  13. I'll do this again this year and try and post about the books I read! 2015 just got away from me... so a new year and a new challenge - I'll be for the Master category.

  14. I am signing up for the Master level.

  15. I love this. I am in a couple other reading challenges but this is my first non-fiction one. Of course, I'll be aiming for the top level. My goal is to read 100 books this year - 50 fiction, 50 non-fiction.

  16. Just wondering, is there a specific page to post our completed reads?

    1. You can share your review links at

  17. Just realised I forgot to join in, even though I posted about the challenge :p Anyway, I'll be going for the Master level!

  18. Okay, it is March, but I just got serious about increasing my nonfiction reads! I am aiming for the Explorer level and have my fingers crossed that this will help motivate me NOT to read fiction ALL the time! :)

  19. Just finished The Power of Beauty by Nancy Friday. This was book number three. I'm a little behind schedule because it took so long to read. I hope get another one read before the end of April.

  20. hapPy to find your challenge - in and past the Master level, a new thing for me and non fiction!
    Thanks for hosting ...

  21. Just read book number 4 - We of the Never Never - well on my way to Explorer Level.

  22. Better late than never - joining at the Dilettante level. Already reading the first book.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Have a great day!
