Non-Fiction Five Challenge

I really enjoyed this when Joy hosted it last year and I'm sure that this year will be just as great! This edition is hosted by Trish, who has kept the rules the same, I believe. Check out the original post to see them, but basically you have to read 5 non-fiction books between 1 May and 30 September 2009. I have tons of these on my radar so this will be easy! :-)

Completed: 3/5 as of 26 July 2009

The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
The Story of God by Robert Winston
Paris - A Secret History by Andrew Hussey
Imperium by Ryszard Kapuściński
A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong
The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
The Stork Club by Imogen Edwards-Jones
We Thought you would be Prettier by Laurie Notaro
The Best Friends' Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Iovine

I had mixed feelings about A Short History of Myth, but still, it was a quick and interesting read. The book on Paris sounds fascinating! Still trying to decide what to read for this.

Yeah, the Paris book is one I got in Paris last year - I always buy something about the place I'm visiting and I had a lot of bookstore time on that trip! :-)

Interesting list! The only one that I've heard of is The Omnivore's Dilemma. I'll be looking forward to hearing what you think.
