Nonfiction Five Challenge - Finished!
I finished Joy's Nonfiction Five Challenge earlier this month and am quite pleased with the results. While I didn't read all 14 that were on my original list, I did read the specified five. Here are the results:
A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas (4/5)
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron (4.5/5)
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson (3.5/5)
Loud and Clear by Anna Quindlen (4/5)
Consuming Passions: A Food-Obsessed Life by Michael Lee West (2/5)
I thoroughly enjoyed A Three Dog Life, I Feel Bad About My Neck, and Loud and Clear. These are all keepers and will most likely wind up on my Top Ten List for 2007. I liked A Walk in the Woods and am glad I read it, but it wasn't nearly as good as I anticipated. Consuming Passions was my only disappointment, although with all the tempting recipes I plan to test, it may turn out to be one I can recommend.
Thanks, Joy, for hosting this fun challenge. I was able to knock a couple of older titles off my TBR stack, as well as pick up some newer books I'd been eyeing.
