Try Something New: A Mini-Challenge is being hosted by Nymeth here: http://thingsmeanalot.blogspot.com/2009/02/try-something-new-mini-challenge.html
where you can see the full explanation.
I had to stop and think for a bit about what I would choose if I participated in the challenge. Then it came to me. I don't really read a lot of non-fiction, so that's the way I'm going to go. I can also tie it in with a couple of other challenges _ the Read Your Own Books challenge and the 100+ Books Challenge as I already have a couple in mind:
Travels through France and Italy, by Tobias Smollett and Great Adventures in Archaeology by Robert Silverberg, both of which have been sitting on my bookshelves for longer than I care to think.
If I do read non-fiction, I tend to go for biographies or autobiographies, so this is definitely outside my comfort zone.
Should be fun!!!
