10.3 - This is CNN

On June 1, 1980 The Cable News Network, TV's first all-news service, went on the air.
Read a NONFICTION book that includes the letters CNN, at least one C and two Ns, in the title and/or subtitle.

There is only 1 N.
The task doesn't require a genre- just that it be nonfiction

It's 20 on the cover.
The librarian's manual states
"The title should match the title shown on the cover of the book"

Kathy | 956 comments Do poetry books qualify as nonfiction? As a librarian, I'm used to having them shelved in the 800s (Dewey), so think of them that way.

Some creative nonfiction may be in poetic form, but the Dewey classification does not make poetry nonfiction.

Ed Lehman | 679 comments Life on a Coral Atoll: Australia's Cocos (Keeling) Islands is a NF book...but since it has no ratings yet...it has no MPGs listed yet. Can I still use it here?

Yes, the task does not require the genre.
