2018 Nonfiction Reading Challenge

Host: Doing Dewey
Dates: January - December 2018

I used to read quite a lot of nonfiction, but haven't really read much in recent years. I'd like to remedy that, and this challenge is perfect for me -- no set numbers or categories to read. I'm not going to commit to any definite number of books, but I'd like to try for at least four or five.

Some I'm hoping to read in 2018:
  • Blue Nights. Joan Didion (autobiography/memoir)
  • Books. Larry McMurtry (memoir)
  • Just Kids. Patti Smith (memoir) 
  • The Pattern in the Carpet: A Personal History with Jigsaws. Margaret Drabble (autobiography/memoir)
  • South and West: From a Notebook. Joan Didion (essays, notes)
  • The Year of Magical Thinking. Joan Didion (autobio/memoir)
And I have a longer list of possibilities over on my challenge blog, where I'll be tracking my progress.


  1. The Year of Magical Thinking is the only Didion I've read so far, but I was really impressed by her writing. I'd definitely like to get to more of her books and look forward to hearing about them when you pick them up :)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
