2020 Nonfiction Reader Challenge

I am so excited to be signing up with Book’d Out’s Nonfiction Reading Challenge! Last year I started to read a bit more nonfiction and this year I would like to read more. I struggled with which level to choose though, but in the end I have decided to try for the Nonfiction Nibbler level, which is 6 books from any category, Since one of the categories is Nature, and I am joining a nature reading book club this month, I hope to more than reach that goal, although I am aiming to read from more than just that one particular category. I am also going to begin tracking my nonfiction reading for the year, and this will be a big help!

If you are interested, here are the details!

Select, read and review a book from the categories listed below during the year for a total of up to 12 books. A book may be in print, electronic or audio format.

Choose a goal:

Nonfiction Nipper : Read 3 books, from any category

Nonfiction Nibbler : Read 6 books, from any category

Nonfiction Know-It-All : Read 12 books, one for each category

* You can choose your books as you go or create a list in advance. You may combine this challenge with others if you wish. Use your best good faith judgement as to whether a book fits the category or not.

* Where a book is identified by more than one category, it may only count for one, not both.

* You can read your chosen titles in any order, at any pace, just complete the challenge by December 31st 2020


1. Memoir

2. Disaster Event

3. Social Science

4. Related to an Occupation

5. History

Each time you read and review a book as part of this challenge, make sure you identify it by adding either a direct statement and/or the challenge image badge to the post. Use the hashtag #2020ReadNonFic and/or tweet @bookdout

Share your review with other challenge participants by posting your name/blog name and title of the book with a direct link to your review in the monthly Linky, which will be posted on the first Saturday of every month.

  2. I’m actually trying to join less reading challenges this year because I got a bit overwhelmed and felt somewhat pigeonholed last year. One of my reading goals is to read 12 non-fiction, but they’re mostly in the social science and memoir categories. Thanks for sharing this, and good luck in completing the challenge!

    1. I am so bad with challenges – I sign up but I don’t put pressure on myself over them. I am easily able to walk away, but I feel like I may wander my way into the books needed for this one over the course of the year. 🙂 We will see though! 🙂
