- Set a goal as to how many nonfiction picture books (or nonfiction MG or YA books) you would like to read over the course of 2014. Maybe you want to read one a month or one a week. Will they all be from 2014 or will you be reading ones previously published? Set a goal that will be fun and not stressful. Last year I read 66 nonfiction picture books, middle grade, and young adult. I'd like to match that number this year; to make it an easier number, I'll say 65. I will read lots of 2014 nonfiction books, but I will include books from previous years, also. Any adult nonfiction I read will be included on my It's Monday! What Are You Reading posts, but not on Wednesdays. I don't include my children's/YA nonfiction on Monday posts. I save them for Wednesdays' posts.
Alyson requests: If you tweet about what you are reading as part of this challenge, please use the twitter hashtag #nfpb2014.
