Dewey Decimal Challenge 2012 – All about non-fic!

Here’s one I’ve forgotten to mention, but which I’m actually participating in …

It’s very simple – all about reading non-fictional books. Subject or genre doesn’t matter, as long as it’s non-fic. I’ve signed up to read five books this year, but I’ve kind of already done that, so I might up it slightly.

Here’s my list of non-fic books read and reviewed in 2012:

  1. Britain’s Living Folklore by Roy Palmer (1991)
  2. The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A Norman (1988)
  3. Hypothyroidism Type 2 by Mark Starr (2005)

And here’s what I’m currently reading and/or drafting:

  1. How to Go Carbon Neutral by Mark Brassington (2008)
  2. [That impossible-to-read course book about design] (2004?)

(UPDATE 2021: Guess I failed, as I only reviewed four books?)


An easily distracted and over-excited introvert who never learns to go to bed at a reasonable time. Enjoys traveling (when there's not a plague on), and taking photos of European architecture. Cares for cats, good coffee and Boardwalk Empire. A child of her time, she did media studies in school and still can't decide what she wants to be when she grows up.
