2015 Nonfiction Reading Challenge

Here is the Nonfiction reading challenge hosted by the Introverted Reader. I did this last year and originally signed up for the first level, but ended up going up.  For now I'll sign up for level one, but see if I can go over. Sign up at the link above. Details below:

This is the sign up page. Please link your reviews here.

It's time to sign up for my Nonfiction Reading Challenge again! 

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. 

I always like levels in my challenges, so here are mine:

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, 2015. You can sign up anytime throughout the year. 

I am not limiting the challenge to bloggers. You can also link to a review you wrote on another site, such as GoodReads or LibraryThing.

Crossovers with other challenges are acceptable, and feel free to read your books in any format you like.
