Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge: 3rd Quarter Recap


If you're participating in my Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge for 2012, I'd love to hear how it's going! Sorry I didn't get a second quarter recap linky up, but here's one for third quarter. Please share your progress so far either in a comment below, or you can link up to a post on your blog. You can give whatever details you'd like to share, but here are a few prompts if you'd like to use them:

How many books have you read for the challenge? 

What topics have you learned about? 

Which books would you recommend and why?

Did any of the books or the information you read in them surprise you in any way?

Why did you choose the books you read?

Everyone who is linked up to the original sign-up linky and provides a recap in a comment on this post or links to a recap blog post in the linky below, will be eligible to win a paperback copy of one of Malcolm Gladwell's books: Outliers, The Tipping Point or What the Dog Saw. The book will ship from The Book Depository. This linky will remain open for the month, but the giveaway ends on Sunday, October 15th. The winner will be chosen by random.org and notified by email ~ so be sure to leave your email in your comment or make it available on your blog if you link to a post.

  1. I've read 17/25 and I've learned about genetic engineering, cooking, slightly pre-Tudor England, and the history of flight. I would highly recommend Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII because it has all the excitement and drama of fiction, while also being true and well-researched. And I just chose topics I found interesting as I was browsing at the library :)
