Nontraditional Nonfiction Monday, it has arrived. What’s with the “Nontraditional”? We’re switching things up this week and encouraging bloggers to write a book review in a style different than their norm. If you have a post to add, leave a comment with a link – I’ll be compiling the posts below as the day goes on. Be sure to check back tomorrow (May 25th), to vote for your favorite review. The winner will receive a 25$ gift card from Schuler Books & Music.
