Happy April 1st everybody!!
If you’ve been doing the TBR Double Dare like I have, you’re chomping at the bit to buy new books to fill all those spaces in your bookshelf that you opened up during the last three months. (I gained about two feet of shelf space after reading 18 books from my shelves!! I already have grand plans for filling it up too.)
I was surprised how easy and enjoyable this challenge was—and how good some of the books I’ve been ignoring for months (and even years) were when I actually sat down and read them. The only problem was that every single book I read was a fiction book.
So, to rectify this uneven reading spree, I’m going to read nothing but non-fiction books for the entire month of April. Yep … you heard me. Non-Fiction April. (This is not a joke.)
I’m actually kind of excited about it, but I wonder if my enthusiasm will hold up for the entire month. I’m sure I’ll be salivating for a nice juicy fiction book fairly soon. First up, I’m going to tackle Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything—just about the only Bill Bryson book I haven’t read yet aside from his Shakespeare book (which I plan on trying to squeeze in this month as well). I’ve also got a few memoirs, a book about the Supreme Court and the audiobook of Game Change (about the 2008 presidential election).
But the book I’m most looking forward to reading is one I’ve preordered and will be starting the second it arrives on my Kindle on April 10th. Want to know what it is?
