Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Genre Non-Fiction

Genre Non-Fiction

Many here are widely read but would perhaps like to learn more about the field. Others might be newer to the field, but are still interested in learing more about it. Either way, this is your chance!

There are scads of fascinating and entertaining genre non-fiction books. You could learn more about a favorite author and their works, gain insight from a better understanding of genre history and historical context, read some of the "Top 100" books responsible for some of the lists featured here, and find more books for your to-read list.

Some possibilities: History, Criticism & Critical Analysis, Top 100, Essay Collections, Review Collections, Biographies, Autobiographies, Interviews, Correspondence and more!

If you're looking for some suggestions, check in at the forum discussion thread.

(BTW, the banner for the challenge was created by our site admin, and it incorporates the figure of Caspar David Friedrich's Wanderer - isn't it gorgeous?)
