I enjoyed this reading challenge and covered a variety of topics. 

What non-fiction books did you read this year?

Carpe Librum!

Would you like to comment?

  1. Thanks May, any of these catch your fancy?

  2. Tracey, I thought I might give War Diaries, Nurses at the Front a go. Sometimes we forget the role that nurses, and women in general, played throughout periods of conflict.
    I aim to read more Non Fiction this year. Your list makes it look easier to achieve than first anticIpated.
    Happy New Year,Tracey, and readers!

  3. I can highly recommend War Diaries, Nurses at the Front. In fact, the family member involved in making these diaries public contacted me a few weeks ago and thanked me for my review. It was incredibly nice of him and he also gave me a link to the complete original text.

    I wish you well in your aim to read more non fiction books this year; it's certainly easier than it sounds and there's an abundance of different topics and areas of interest.


Thanks for your comment, Carpe Librum!
