2021 Non-Fiction Reading Challenge, Update and Alteration

Making some changes to original goals

This challenge was offered by Bookout, a blog I often enjoy. I joined in on the challenge last December. Originally, I decided to go for the “Nibbler” category, where one read six non-fiction books from any category, but I was hoping to read one book from each of the six categories offered.

Although I am enjoying non-fiction far more than I had anticipated, I need to simply read from any of the non-fiction categories, rather than limit my choices. That said, here’s the non-fiction I’ve read so far this year:

The Joy of Teaching

The Happiness Project

Bonjour Happiness

Cowgirl Smarts

Q’s Legacy

Think Again

Oh my! I’ve read six books! CHALLENGE COMPLETED!

FRIDAY FIRSTLINERS

Thanks to Hoarding Books for creating this fun meme.

My First Line Friday offering comes from Think Again by Adam Grant, a book just out. It deals with “The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know.” Skipping the Prologue, which definitely got my attention, the first chapter opens with:

“You probably don’t recognize his name, but Mike Lazaridis has had a defining impact on your life. From an early age, it was clear Mike was something of an electronics wizard.”

I am trying to read more non-fiction in 2021 than I did in 2020, and this is going to be enjoyable reading.
