2013 Nerdy Non-Fiction Challenge


Welcome to the 2013 Nerdy Non-Fiction Challenge!!
Last year I got the urge to read more non-fiction books after all that dystopian and fantasy I read, so I created this challenge to help motivate me to do just that in 2013.

If you want to participate, feel free. If there's another non-fiction challenge going on that you would rather do, then go for it! My goal here is really just to encourage you all to read more non-fiction this year. I'm hoping to pick at least 10 of the categories and read both an adult and a children's book in each category. We'll see how it goes.


Geek: 4-6 books in at least 2-3 different categories

Dork: 7-10 books in at least 4-5 different categories

Dweeb: 11- 14 books in at least 6-7 different categories

Nerd: 15+ books in at least 8+ different categories


* Health, Medicine, Fitness, Wellness

* History- US, World, European, etc

* Religion, Spirituality, Philosophy

* Technology, Engineering, Computers, etc

* Business, Finance, Management

* Sports, Adventure

* Food- Cookbooks, Cooks, Vegan Vegetarianism, etc

* Autobiography, Biography, Memoir

* Art, Photography, Architecture

* Music, Film, TV

* Self Improvement, Self Help, How To

* Home, Garden

* Science-Nature, Weather, Biology, Geology

* Anthropology, Archaeology

* Animals-Insects, Mammals, Dinosaurs, etc

* Family, Relationships, Parenting, Dating, Love

* Crime, Law

* Poetry, Theatre

* Politics, Government, Current Affairs

* Literary Criticism/Theory

* Cultural Studies

* Travel

* Crafts

* It is not necessary to pick your categories ahead of time, but try not to read more than two books in each category so you can broaden your horizons.

* The categories I listed are just suggestions. If you have a different category you'd like to add, let me know!

* When you write about the challenge or read/review a book, come back here and link up or leave a comment and tell me what you read and what you thought of it.

* If you're participating in a different non-fiction challenge, please feel free to still link up. It's always fun to see what other people have read in the different non-fiction categories.

Happy reading (and learning)!
