Non-Fiction Five Challenge

I am joining Joy's Non-Fiction Five Challenge!

I have been thinking about joining this challenge for the past 4 or 5 days, and though I a first didn't want to join so that I had more time for fun reads, I now just feel like I have to join! It has been a looong while since I last read non-fiction other than what I need to read for university, so this will definitely be something different.

My 5 books are:

  • 1. Bill Bryson - A Short History Of Nearly Everything

  • 2. Bill Bryson - In A Sunburned Country (in German)

  • 3. Bill Bryson - The Lost Continent

  • 4. Tony Buzan - Use Your Head (in German)

  • 5. Azar Nafisi - Reading Lolita In Tehran

  • 6. Nancy Peske & Beverly West - Cinematherapy For Lovers

  • 7. Hilary Rodham Clinton - Living History

  • 8. Geneen Roth - Breaking Free From Compulsive Eating (in German)

  • 9. Cameron West - First Person Plural: My Life As A Multiple (in German)

Of course I realize this list is a bit longer as it is supposed to be, but I will change the list so that in the end there will be five books left in time for the beginning of the challenge.


  1. That's a great list. However, I did not think Bryson's Australia book was very good. I would recommend A Walk in the Woods - it's one of his best!

    Reading Lolita in Tehran is a great book! I plan on joining this challenge, but am taking sometime to determine by list of books.

  2. Hey Kathrin! I'm not sure if I welcomed you to the Non-Fiction Five Challenge or not. If not...WELCOME! :) I'm glad you will be joining us in this reading adventure.

    I'm going to link your name to this post, so others can see your choices.

  3. Hi Joy,
    I think you welcomed me for the challenge at the group for the TBR challenge ;-) seems like I've become a challenge addict for this year, though it is not even sure where I'll be at the end of this year LOL
    Either way, I'll manage to read a lot wherever I will be... I love reading apparently.

    I'm still trying to figure out which books will make up my 5, tough choice, to be honest...
