There was time when I did regularly join in reading challenges, afraid I was not always as dedicated as I aspired to be. These days I tend to keep my commitments simple; my own Gaia/nature challenge and my goodreads challenge which is always a comfortable goal of a mere 36 books but I do occasionally increase that goal if I feel I will be able to easily reach the original number.

I have, however, decided to sign up for the 2021 Nonfiction challenge hosted by Shelleyrae at Book’d Out. I am feeling brave and will sign up for the Nonfiction Know it all goal and try to read 12 nonfiction books, one for each category. I am a big reader of nonfiction, so this is within my comfort zone. Check out Book’d Out and maybe think about joining the challenge, you could choose the Nonfiction Nipper goal of 3 books, chosen from any of the suggested categories, now that is a pretty doable goal. Details copied from Book’d Out below:

The aim of the Nonfiction Reader Challenge is to encourage you to make nonfiction part of your reading experience during the year.


The challenge will run from January 1st to December 31st 2021. Participants may join at any time up until December 1st 2021

Create a blog post committing to your participation in this challenge.

* If you don’t have a blog you are still welcome to sign up. You can create a shelf for the challenge at Goodreads or LibraryThing, post via Instagram, or Twitter. Just add your name and a link to your shelf/account in the sign-up.

Select, read and review a book from the categories listed below during the year for a total of up to 12 books. A book may be in print, electronic or audio format.


Nonfiction Nipper : Read 3 books, from any category

Nonfiction Nibbler : Read 6 books, from any category

Nonfiction Know-It-All : Read 12 books, one for each category

* You can choose your books as you go or create a list in advance. You may combine this challenge with others if you wish. Use your best good faith judgement as to whether a book fits the category or not.

* Where a book is identified by more than one category, it may only count for one, not both.

* You can read your chosen titles in any order, at any pace, just complete the challenge by December 31st 2021
