This Isn’t Fiction Reading Challenge: Progress Page

The This Isn’t Fiction Reading Challenge (ie reading non fiction) is run by Birgit at The Book Garden.

These are the levels to aim for:

  • 5 Books – Kindergarden
  • 10 Books – Elementary School
  • 15 Books – High School
  • 20 or more Books – College

After looking at my list of unread non fiction on my LibraryThing catalogue I found that I have 30+ books, so I should find plenty of choice to go for the High School level and maybe even for the College level. Most of them are autobiographies/biographies, with some history and a touch of philosophy and travel.

  2. Paw Tracks at Owl Cottage by Denis O’Connor
  3. Wildwood: a Journey Through Trees by Roger Deakin
