Nerdy Non-Fiction Reading Challenge 2013

I'm always neglecting my non-fiction shelves (non-fiction is hard!), so I thought a good challenge would help with that problem! And, well, it has nerdy in the name. I couldn't resist.

Check out the challenge page for the full details.

I'll be going for the second level, Dork, which means reading 7 to 10 non-fiction books in 4 to 5 of the specified categories.

As I read books for this challenge I will list them below.
  1. Getting the Most Out of RootsMagic Version 5 by Bruce Buzbee (category: Self Improvement, Self Help, How To)
  2. Hello Hot Lunch, Hello Cool Lunch by Lisa Leconte (category: Food - Cookbooks, Cooks, Vegan Vegetarianism, etc)
  3. The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King (category: History - US, World, European, etc., and/or category: Politics, Government, Current Affairs)


  1. I would never do well with this challenge. I only read 5 or 6 nonfiction a year. Maybe that will change now that school is done. Maybe I would want to more.

    1. I don't read a lot of nonfiction either, but I have built up a bit of a pile in a few different subject areas, particularly feminism and environmentalism, so I'm using this challenge to motivate myself to make time for those.
