Truth is Stranger than Fiction Reading Challenge 2010

Ok.. so I know I said no more challenges but Tenia, my friend from shelfari, keeps posting about new book challenges and I can't resist when they fit with books I need to read.. so here it goes.

Welcome to the Truth is Stranger Than Fiction Reading Challenge!

Sure, we all like to read fiction, but there's lots of great non-fiction out there, too!

Here at Truth is Stranger Than Fiction, the goal is to encourage everyone to read more of it.

The Rules:

Only non-fiction books apply! These can be anything you're interested in: memoirs, history, geography, politics, religion, sports - whatever non-fiction you've put your hands on and your nose into.

Overlaps with other challenges allowed!

Post a list of choices if you want, or make it up as you go along.
Any book format is allowed. There are four levels:
Just the Facts - Read two non-fiction books.
The Scoop - Read four non-fiction books.
**The Whole Story - Read six non-fiction books. **<-- my choice
Nothing But the Truth - Read eight (or more) non-fiction books.

The challenge will run from February 1, 2010 through February 28, 2011.

Interested? Just sign up on the nonfictionchallenge blog.

Please use the link to the post where you'll be listing your books. If you want to list your books on your sidebar, that's okay, too - just link back to the sign-up so other people can join in, too!

Ok, so now you know what it's about and that I'll be choosing "The Whole Story" and will be reading 6 non-fiction books.

  • The LIfe and times of the thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson
