This one is hosted by Melissa over at The Betty and Boo Chronicles. Participants must read at least 4 memoirs, letters, and diaries between January 1 and December 31, 2010. I joined this challenge because of the relatively low commitment and because I've been meaning to read more non-fiction, and this is a good way to get myself to do it. I also already have one book I'm going to read for it! No idea what the other books will be yet.
1. My Life in France by Julia Child
2. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
I've been thinking about doing this one for a while but wasn't sure if I wanted to make the commitment. I think it will be an interesting experience though, and I already know one book I want to read for it. I'm going to start at the level of Dip, or 5 books, about the Vietnam War
1. Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien
I really like the idea behind this challenge: focusing on a different area of injustice every month. You can choose your level of participation month by month, but must be at the activist level for at least three of the months of the challenge. January is focusing on religious freedom. I haven't decided what level to do for this month yet. I'm probably most excited for the month focusing on water - that is a big part of what I studied in college so I'm excited to share what I know and hear from others!
