    I am interested, just not sure if I’ll get through 6 nonfiction books, which is a terrible thing, but I struggle with the way a lot of them are written.

    I was ready to write my post to join….but, for some odd reason, my computer kept rejecting the image for the challenge! I think we have weird Internet security here. I tried changing the name of the file, but it didn’t work. I may create my own badge, if that works.

    Wow, this is the kind of nonfiction challenge I’ve been looking for. It will increase my variety of reading. I’m already in a challenge with LibraryThing, but hopefully this will add to my variety as well. I’ll add it to my list.

    I found this challenge from your comment on The Reading Ladies. I want to add more non-fiction to my repertoire. I set a goal for myself to read 12 this year, but I would not do one from each of those categories. I think I will try to do Nonfiction Nibbler, but with a total of 12 books instead of six. I will try to fulfill at least 3 different categories.

    Ooh, I love nonfiction! It’s even part of my blog name… Mysteries and Memoirs, but actually all aspects of nonfiction I’ve read in the past few years! Thank you.

    I don’t read much Nonfiction so I’ve joined as a nipper but would love it if I could read more than three.

    I’m excited to participate for the first time! I read several nonfiction books every year, but some of them wouldn’t fit into the categories. But I’ll aim for six and see how it goes. Thanks for hosting!
