Non-Fiction Five!

I've never tried this one, but based on the books I've got coming up, it looks like a good one :) It will certainly stretch me a bit, and that's a good thing.
The rules:
1. Read 5 non-fiction books during the months of May - September, 2009 (please link your reviews on Mister Linky each month; Mister Linky can be found each month on this blog)

2. Read at least one non-fiction book that is different from your other choices (i.e.: 4 memoirs and 1 self-help)

My tentative list:
1. An Edible History of Humanity by Tom Standage
2. Why Darwin Matters: The Case Against Intelligent Design by Michael Shermer
3. Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
4. Hold On To Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers by Gorden Neufeld
5. The Singing Creek Where the Willows Grow - The Mystical Nature Diary of Opal Whitely

I'm really excited!

Yay! So glad you'll be joining us. I haven't read any of your choices, but they sound really interesting--will you be reading these for book club or fun? Sounds like you would have been reading some of these anyway?

We've been reading the Malcolm Gladwell books, which I think you might enjoy. 'Outliers' has changed the way I think about success and how I focus on raising the kid. Just a suggestion, since you're looking for nonfic....

Hope you're feeling well. Think of you often. :)

Trish - the Darwin one is for book club (yeah, wouldn't pick THAT one on my own!) but the others are for fun :)

Mookie Mama - Clint just read Outliers this week! He really liked it too. I read Blink and found it surprisingly engaging.

I think Outliers is better than Blink. Blink was interesting, but Outliers has changed the way I think about things. I'm on the waiting list at the library for Tipping Point. I'll let you know. :)
