Nonfiction Reading Challenge 2015

I wasn’t going to take part in any more challenges this year – I’m probably doing too many – but when I saw this Nonfiction Challenge, hosted by The Introverted Reader I thought it could encourage me to read my non-fiction books. It runs between 1 January to 31 December 2015. You can sign up any time throughout the year.

Unlike some of the challenges I’ve joined this one really is a challenge for me, because although I like to read non-fiction I often find my self opting for fiction.

The Challenge:  Read any non-fiction book(s), adult or young adult.That’s it. You can choose anything. Memoirs, History, Travel – absolutely anything that is classified as non-fiction counts for this challenge.

The levels:

Dilettante–Read 1-5 non-fiction books

Explorer–Read 6-10

Seeker–Read 11-15

Master–Read 16-20

I am aiming at the Seeker level and hoping to read more than 12 books (my total for last year!)

  1. Good luck with this one. I’m tempted as I tend to read a reasonable amount of non-fiction but it would mean I would have to review every one and I don’t always do that for one reason or another.


    1. Thanks, Cath – I hesitated for ages before joining another challenge, but this one really is a challenge just as the Mount TBR is. I don’t want to review every book either, but will try for these two challenges.


  2. I have a fair amount of non-fiction on my 2015 TBR shelf so I might actually be successful reaching Explorer level without adding any more books into the mix. I agree with the statement about enjoying non-fiction but tending to pick up fiction when choosing what to read next.
