2013 Non-Fiction Challenge

The Challenge:  Read any non-fiction book(s), adult or young adult.That's it. You can choose anything. Memoirs? Yes. History? Yes. Travel? Yes. You get the idea? Absolutely anything that is classified as non-fiction counts for this challenge. 

Dilettante--Read 1-5 non-fiction books

Explorer--Read 6-10 

Seeker--Read 11-15

Master--Read 16-20

This challenge will last from January 1 to December 31, 2013. You can sign up anytime throughout the year.



I read a mild amount of non-fiction, so I'll try for at least 1 non-fiction book a month.
Guess that makes me a "Seeker".
