Non-Fiction Five Challenge

I joined this challenge awhile ago but I don't think that I posted about it. Or made my list now that I am thinking about it. I made a list of possibilities to choose from for this challenge just because it seemed a bit more flexible. If you haven't joined this challenge yet then come on and have some fun!
Here is my list of possibilities:
  • Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond

  • The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court

  • Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah

  • I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Joanne Greenberg

  • Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa by Peter Godwin

  • Under The Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer

  • Don't Let's Go To the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller


  1. SURPRISE! I didn't even realize that you signed up. My e-mail notification didn't work for over a week and I was lost! I'm glad I saw your post through Google Reader. Without further ado . . .

    Welcome to the Non-Fiction Five Challenge, Sam! The only one I read off your list is Long Way Gone and I thought it was devastatingly great. Hope you enjoy all your choices.

    Happy Reading!

  2. Thanks for hosting this again Joy. Now that you say that...hmmm..I hope I remembered to officially sign up. I better go and double check :)

  3. You did. I checked. It was early on. :)

  4. Long Way Gone is the only one on your list that I've read. It was harrowing, but worth the effort. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think the Sunday Salon is going to be a lot of fun. It's a chance to find out about books that would not otherwise come my way.

  5. Fay- Thanks for stopping by here as well. And I love the Sunday Salon because of all of the blogs that I get to visit.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
