Entry: Nerdy Non-Fiction Challenge 2013

I don’t read much non-fiction and that doesn’t bother me, but I would like to read a bit more.  Therefore, I’m going for the geek level of the this challenge.  Wish me luck!

Welcome to the 2013 Nerdy Non-Fiction Challenge!!

Last year I got the urge to read more non-fiction books after all that dystopian and fantasy I read, so I created this challenge to help motivate me to do just that in 2013.

If you want to participate, feel free. If there’s another non-fiction challenge going on that you would rather do, then go for it! My goal here is really just to encourage you all to read more non-fiction this year. I’m hoping to pick at least 10 of the categories and read both an adult and a children’s book in each category. We’ll see how it goes.

GUIDELINES

Levels:

Geek: 4-6 books in at least 2-3 different categories
Dork: 7-10 books in at least 4-5 different categories
Dweeb: 11- 14 books in at least 6-7 different categories
Nerd: 15+ books in at least 8+ different categories

Categories:

* Health, Medicine, Fitness, Wellness
* History- US, World, European, etc
* Religion, Spirituality, Philosophy

*  It is not necessary to pick your categories ahead of time, but try not to read more than two books in each category so you can broaden your horizons.

*  The categories I listed are just suggestions. If you have a different category you’d like to add, let me know!

* When you write about the challenge or read/review a book, come back here and link up or leave a comment and tell me what you read and what you thought of it.

* If you’re participating in a different non-fiction challenge, please feel free to still link up. It’s always fun to see what other people have read in the different non-fiction categories.

Happy reading (and learning)!
