Ok it's true I have joined way too many reading challenges but this one is with a serious purpose. Yesterday I discovered that I am far behind in my reading on books about women and equality and the struggle of women around the world. What kind of woman am I if I don't stay in touch with my sisters and their plight around the globe? Well, I was ashamed and so went to find a reading challenge that could help me shape up. That is when I stumbled on Trish's Reading Nook and her non-fiction reading challenge. I am excited to get started on this one but since the challenge doesn't officially start till May I will use that time to knock out as many books from all the other reading challenges I have signed up for so I have a clean(er) slate to get started with this one.
The rules to this one are pretty easy:
1. Read 5 non-fiction books during the months of May - September, 2010
2. Read at least one non-fiction book that is different from your other choices (i.e.: 4 memoirs and 1 self-help)
I plan to read all 5 of my non-fiction books with women as my theme, maybe current affairs maybe biographies, maybe sociology, whatever looks good at the time as long as it's about women and women's issues.
