1000 Books Project: Non-Fiction 2020


I picked up a copy of James Mustich's amazing 1000 Books to Read Before You Die: A Life Changing List and upon looking through it, I realized it really is a well-rounded reading recommendation book. I was pleased to discover I have read quite a few of the books he lists, and that many of them are on my personal reading lists (and they are books I own). So, to ever expand my reading horizons, and include others in the journey, I decided to create a new read-along challenge, or project, if you will.

The project consists of a year long schedule of quarterly read-alongs, this year focusing on non-fiction.

Schedule

First Quarter (Jan, Feb, March) - The Histories, Herodotus
Second Quarter (April, May, June) - The Sagas of Icelanders (preface by Jane Smiley)
Third Quarter (July, Aug, Sept) - In Cold Blood, Truman Capote (in honor of Banned Books Week in September.)
Fourth Quarter (Oct, Nov, Dec) - Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Dee Brown (in honor of National American Indian Heritage Month in November.)

Watch for the reading schedule for our first read-along, The Histories which I will have posted on January 1st.

  1. I would love to join in for the first two quarters, reading Herodotus and the Sagas of the Icelanders! Perhaps the fourth quarter too! Thanks!
