For the next three weeks I will post some titles for each category that might inspire your own selections. Use your best judgement as to whether a book fits a particular category or not, this is supposed to be a challenge, not a chore, and you only really need suit yourself.

SOCIAL HISTORY

Social history focuses on how and why social groups and relationships are formed, develop, interact and function, with an emphasis on lived experience.




 


POPULAR SCIENCE

Popular science explores or explains scientific concepts and topics in a manner appropriate for, and appealing to, a layman audience, often with an emphasis on personal relevance.




 

 

Just a reminder, it is helpful when you post your review if you indicate which category it fulfils for when I put together the Monthly Spotlight.

And don’t forget to share your latest read/review in the Linky

 

I’ve also put together these two PDF printable files for you.

    Some good suggestions Shelleyrae. I think I am going to read or listen to Hiillbilly Elegy for Social History, but Ghosts of the Tsunami calls to me as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I decided to forgo the categories and just read whatever NF I wanted to, but it’s still good to have ideas of what to read.
