Last year I set the goal for myself to read 52 books during the year. And I did! I read 54 actually. And it was great. The variety of books I read really surprised me, but I learned so much. I challenged a few friends to do it as well.
This year, the Book Guardian has issued a different challenge. She suggested reading one book for each letter of the alphabet, and to make it more interesting, do them in order. These will all be nonfiction books too.
My A book was about American Teenagers. I kind of had to read it for my program, but it still counts, and it was real interesting.
Then I found myself standing at a computer at the U of A library for half an hour trying to think of a B topic that they would have in the library so I could get going on my next book. (I had to laugh when I tried looking up books about the Bolshevik Revolution, you should try it. The PC-ness of it is hilarious.) I eventually settled on a book about the Boston Tea Party. It’s already interesting and I’m only on page 16.
Now, so I don’t have to spend another half hour trying to think up topics that they would have in the library (Haven’t I already posted about how pathetic this library is at least once? Maybe not, but I need to. Oh how I miss the BYU library), I’m asking for help.
Give me topics for the rest of the letters, and bonus brownie points if you can find a good book on that topic at the U of A library.
