Okay, I know I used to dismiss challenges "I never do reading challenges!" because I hated feeling obligated to read a book that was boring or annoying me (which is what I'm going through right now with Emma, augh!) But I still have all these heaps of books in my bedroom, and I've just found two more challenges that look really cool. So.... I'm signing up for Trish's Non-Fiction Five! Here's the rules:
1.Read 5 non-fiction books during the months of May - September, 2009
2.Read at least one non-fiction book that is different from your other choices
3.If interested, sign up with the link to your NFF Challenge post
At first I was going to do five books about animals, and one different, but then I decided that's not really a challenge for me, since I already read tons of animal books. So here's my picks (off my shelf):
Ice Bound by Dr. Jerri Nielsen- I won this book in a givewaway from someone, but now I can't remember who it was. If you gave away this book on your blog (months and months ago) can you remind me?
Invincible by Vince Papale- This one's about a bartender who became an NFL football player at age 30. A tribute to my husband's love for football.
It's Not About the Bike by Lance Armstrong- I don't know much about Armstrong, but when I found this one at a library sale it looked interesting.
The Ra Expeditions by Thor Heyerdahl- I enjoyed reading Kon-Tiki so much, I ordered this one from Paperback Swap as soon as I could find it.
The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell- This one has been on my TBR forever. I could never find a copy at the library or to swap for, but finally picked up one at a local surplus sale a few weeks ago. I was so thrilled!
