CURLING UP WITH STACKS OF BOOKS…

Today I curled up on my bench to read; I’m eager to work my way through the stack of hardcover books I have recently acquired.  On the left, I have fiction versions, and nearby on my nightstand, I have these nonfiction ones.

January 1 launches a Nonfiction Reading Challenge, and I hope to finish these and a few more, some of which are tucked away in other cupboards, hiding behind photos and trinkets…like this one:

Before I start the Nonfiction Challenge, however, I’ll be participating in First Book of the Year.  My chosen tome is ready to go.  I’ll be writing about it on January 1.

I have plans to read more fiction, too, so next week I will be downloading a preordered book that sounds tempting:  The Playground, by Jane Shemilt.

Big Little Lies meets Lord of The Flies in this electrifyingly twisty follow-up to Jane Shemilt’s breakout debut The Daughter.

What are your reading plans for 2020?  Will you be joining challenges, or reading whatever you find on Amazon, in bookshops, or in the library?

    1. Thanks, Kathryn, I must admit that I grab anything and everything to do with the Kennedys, but haven’t read much about the younger ones.

      I’ve been challenge-free for years, but now I have a stack of nonfiction to read…so it seemed like the time.

      Enjoy your weekend!

    Thanks for high-lighting the Non Fiction Challenge. Works perfectly for me, since I started the year with a biography. I have also set my aim this year to read more non fiction. I wrote about it on my First Book of the Year post: https://thecontentreader.blogspot.com/2020/02/the-first-book-of-year-2020.html

    Good luck with your non fiction reading. Looking forward to see what interests you in this challenge. I am mostly for history, but think I can find a few other subjects as well.
