The 2019 Reading Challenges are here! Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge categories? We can help! Throughout the year, we will highlight several juvenile, YA, and adult fiction (or non-fiction) books in most of the categories.
These aren’t the only books we have available in each category but are ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier.
We’re continuing our discussion of books with the category “A Book of Poetry.”
Under the Dewey Decimal System, poetry typically is classified as “non-fiction.” Below are a few selected poetry titles in our collection, but more may be found in the Non-Fiction section in the 800s.
