I posted in the History section, but wasnt sure how many people go to that forum, since the postings are scarce.

I enjoy the challenges that take place here at PBS; however, I find i rarely finish them cause i spend most of my time reading non-fiction history and biographies. I was wondering if there would be any interest in a 2012 Non Fiction History Challenge. I would make it short (12 challenges, 1 book a month). Let me know, Thanks Kat

Kat,  I would probably go for this,  I have at least 12 non-fiction books on my shelf that I really should get to as most are wish listed.  I do go into the history forum on the odd occasion. This might be a reason to visit more often.

Ooh, I think it sounds interesting!  My non-fiction seems to languish on my TBR pile, and this would give me a good reason to read them!

Ok, I posted it in the History Forum. Even if it is just the three of us, should be fun smiley

I'll join in as well. I've got quite a bit of non-fiction history on my shelf, and this will give me a kick in the butt to get them read!

Well, I used to have a lot of non fiction, but I don't think I do anymore. I'll take a look over there though as I pop into that forum from time to time!

I have never browsed the History forum. So, I will start checking.

Hmm, I might be interested if there's a mini-challenge.  Or a mini-mini-challenge! cheeky

I've already signed up for...I think, six challenges?  But I have several history books on my TBR.

Diane, SIX, well whats one more, lol. I set it up the same as the others where you can choose the full challenge of 12 or half challenge of 6. But honestly, if you only want to read one book, go for it, lol.

Depending on how much interest the challenge gets maybe we can expand it to other mini-challenges.
