I was never a huge reader of nonfiction, but I did used to read anywhere from 1-5 nonfiction books a year. But the last five years or so I seem to have totally stopped reading it, except for a few children’s books I’ve read for work. I’m not really sure why I have stopped, but it kind of bugs me. My husband pretty much only reads nonfiction, and we watch a lot of documentaries on TV, so maybe I feel like that is enough? I don’t know, but I somehow feel that I am missing out by not reading nonfiction books, especially since there are so many good ones out there. I have seen this challenge around on the blogs I follow and I have decided that this is the year I am going to get back into it.
I am going for the easy challenge, the Nonfiction Nibbler, and try to read at least 3 nonfiction books this year. But maybe I will read more. I was looking over on NetGalley to see if there were any ARC’s that peaked my interest and so far I have found and requested two, so off to a good start. There are also a couple of nonfiction books around the house that I keep meaning to pick up. (My husband would be thrilled if I finally read Hillbilly Elegy)
Wish me luck!
