2020 Nonfiction Reader Challenge: Monthly Spotlight #8

I’m delighted with the response to the inaugural Nonfiction Reader Challenge so far, and since sign-ups are open until December 1st, a few more may decide to join us during the year.

If you hadn’t yet noticed, I’ve created a permanent page for the challenge, you can CLICK HERE, or select the menu link at top left.

The Linky to add your review to can be found there. This new link will remain active for the rest for the year’s submissions. Look for the text in orange.

On the first Saturday of each month, I will be highlighting a handful of Linky submissions, but I encourage you to support all participants who have shared what they have been reading for the challenge. Give them a like, leave them a comment, share their posts on twitter, Facebook or instagram #2020ReadNonFic

 

IN AUGUST….

Tracey of CarpeLibrum chose to read Shark Arm – A Shark, A Tattooed Arm and Two Unsolved Murders, by Australian authors Phillip Roope and Kevin Meagher for the True Crime category. It delves into the case of a murder discovered when a captured shark vomited a man’s tattooed arm in a Sydney aquarium.

There’s A Zoo in My Poo written by Felice Jacka and illustrated by Rob Craw is a picture book for children about gut health, and a fun fit for the medical category. Veronica of The Burgeoning Bookshelf wrote, “…entertaining prose making this complex topic easier for children, and adults, to understand.”

++++++

Of The Other Side of Absence by Betty O’Neill, Denise of DeniseNewtonWrites says, “This memoir, like others I have read (such as Magda Szubanski’s Reckoning, or Esther Safran Foer’s I want you to know we’re still here), illuminate the present by examining the past. The Other Side of Absence is a beautifully written, engrossing and heartfelt addition to Australian memoir.”

+++++++

Laurel-Rain of CurlUpandRead gave five stars to Mary L. Trump’s portrait of her uncle, Donald Trump, in Too Much and Never Enough.

++++++

“Anthony Ham’s The Last Lions of Africa is a fascinating and thought-provoking read about these majestic creatures in peril.“, writes Jo of BookloverBookReviews. She thinks it would make an excellent Father’s Day gift (which is tomorrow in Australia)

    I have to get back to my non-fiction reads, too many blog tours. I need to back off.

    The challenge encouraged me to up my nonfiction reading game – and then I completely forgot to post any of my reviews! I need to get things cleaned up and then get the posts linked. Love seeing all of the interesting books everyone is reading!
