A Non-Fictional Adventure Challenge


This is part of a Challenge hosted by Michelle - learn about it HERE

Here is the list of non-fictional books which I am going to read (and review in the next 5 years - hope I'll make it so long..) Lucky for me memoirs, biographies and the like are counting as non-fiction books - I doubt that some books are nothing but non-fiction.. ;") 

I start this challenge March 30, 2011 - it will end March 30, 2017. 

I will read the books when I feel like - the order is just random here. According to the rules I am allowed to change titles - and I guess maybe I will also go further than the 59 books I named here.. I'll see..

Here are the "nominees" - reviews will be linked. To those I have read I will ad a picture of the cover resp. something fitting:
