Top 10 Tuesday, March 9: Spring Cleaning - Non-Fiction I Own

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Today's theme:  Spring Cleaning Freebie!

I've decided to interpret this as going through my bookshelf to pull out the non-fiction I own that I plan to read.
