Non-Fiction Five Challenge

I'm sure that I can do this book challenge, so I'm signing up! Basically, a participant needs to read 5 non-fiction books between May and September. At least one needs to be a different category than the others. (I learned of this challenge via Maggie.) I'm sure several of mine will be history or genealogy related, but I've got a few others from different categories that I've been wanting to read, so I'm going to sign up. If I'm lucky, my Advance Review Copy from March will arrive from Gefen Publishing House that I obtained through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers' Program. It will fit nicely into this challenge.

May 20, 2008:

1. Gilbert, Elizabeth. Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia. (read May 15, 2008)
2. Webb, James. Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America. (read May 21, 2008)
3. Rubin, Chana. Food for the Soul: Traditional Jewish Wisdom for Healthy Eating. (read May 22, 2008)

I tried leaving a message and maybe it did and maybe it didn't go through? Anyhoo, I'm thrilled you are doing the challenge. I love me some nonfiction! :D
