Reading New England: Nonfiction

Posted June 5, 2016 by Lory in challenges / 6 Comments


This month for the Reading New England challenge, I’m concentrating on nonfiction. (As usual, all participants are welcome to read from any category at any time.) There’s certainly no shortage of great nonfiction of many different varieties from New England; here are some titles that caught my eye:

26FairmountMemoir and Biography

Science and Nature


YarnFarmingCurrent Events

Arts and Crafts

On my shelf, I have Writing America by Shelley Fisher Fishkin, and New England Bound by Wendy Warren, both of which I’d definitely like to get to this month as the publishers were kind enough to send them to me. Beyond that, I’ll just follow my nose. What do you plan to read this month?

    What a great list! I’m not participating in the challenge, but I’ve always been interested in the rich history of these particular states.

    • So many interesting titles here. I’m glad you find it inspiring even if you’re not participating in the challenge.

    I enjoy Madeleine L’Engle’s nonfiction and really liked A Circle of Quiet. But for the challenge I am reading The Heathen School, which sounds intriguing.

    How exciting! I can’t wait to hear more about your nonfiction reading this month 🙂

    • Yes, so many exciting choices here. I’ll be hoping to read more in future months if I don’t get to them now.
