10 for 10: 2014 Nonfiction Challenge

This is my non-review say, making it the best to join a one-day event called the 10 for 10: 2014 Nonfiction Book Challenge. Which 10 nonfiction books could I not live without in 2014? This is brought to you by the beautiful minds of Cathy MereReflect & RefineMandy RobekEnjoy & Embrace Learning—and Julie BalenWrite at the Edge.  Here are the rules:

  • What:  10 nonfiction books you can’t live without
  • Hashtag:  #nf10for10
  • Who:  Anyone interested — educators, media specialists, librarians, parents, etc.
  • When:  Wednesday, February 19th 
  • Where:  All posts will need to be linked at Write at the Edge.  Then I will move them into a jog resource during the week of the event.

Now, my dear readers what are the 10 nonfiction books you could not live without or are your favorite?  I had a hard time narrowing it down to 10, and the list will change as the year progresses and I hear of, or am sent, other great nonfiction books for children and middle graders.

I will hopefully have the energy to write a review later today. It is now almost 4 AM. Reviewing is a tough job.  🙂   If you do not see a review tomorrow,  you most certainly will on Saturday, but I am betting my strength will find its way back, considering the book I want to tell you about next.  It is one of those 10 above. Can you guess which one?  I’d put this one at or near number 1 on the list above.

See you tomorrow.

    • Your are welcome. I see you are from Columbus. I am planning on moving there is the very near future. Had lived there the first 20 years of my adult life. Love it and cannot wait to get back! 🙂

      Wisdom is an awe inspiring albatross that has given birth again! She should not be still birthing but she keeps at it. Amazing true story.
