Non-Fiction Five Challenge
Well, I'm late, as usual.
I'm finally joining in on the Non-Fiction Five Challenge, hosted by Joy at Thoughts of Joy. Check out the link to see what it's all about. It goes from May to September, so I'll try to read my first book really quickly, before the end of this month!
I've been reading about this challenge for awhile now, and thinking it was a great idea. But I've never actually joined in on a challenge, so I hesitated.
Then I looked at my TBR list and saw so many non-fiction books on it that I realized I would be reading five before September, anyway.
And then I would be annoyed with myself if I hadn't done the challenge, but had read the books anyway. Because I like to have that kind of satisfaction, darn it. I want to say I finished a challenge!
So here's my list for the Non-Fiction Five:
Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire: The Methods and Madness Inside Room 56, by Rafe Esquith
How Doctors Think, by Jerome Groopman, M.D.
My Life in France, by Julia Child and Alex Prud'homme
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life, by Barbara Kingsolver
Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Novel, by Jane Smiley
I'm excited to start! I'll put the list on my sidebar, soon...
