I’d like to thank Katie from Doing Dewey for the inspiration for this challenge. A week or so ago, I posted a question on twitter to ask if there were any blogs that did weekly non-fiction features – because recently I have found myself reading more and more non-fiction. Rather than gravitating towards the new release fiction section in the library, I’ve been browsing the non-fiction shelves looking for a book about whatever random topic catches my eye (and there have been some interesting ones that I’ve added to my shelves recently).
Anyways, while browsing Doing Dewey, I found that she had been working on a challenge, to read 100 non-fiction books, each one from a different class and division within the Dewey Decimal system. This caught my eye because I figured it would be a way to push me outside my comfort zone when it came to picking new books to read (even within non-fiction, I tend towards books in the 900 series, or biographies/autobiographies.
I’m declaring that I officially started the challenge March 1 – even if I’m just blogging about it now. I’ll be posting reviews for books on Friday’s, as part of Doing Dewey Non-Fiction Friday feature.
