Nonfiction and Poetry 2022

One of my reading plans for 2022 was to read 25 works of nonfiction and 4 books of poetry." More would be fine, but I want to get to at least this many works of nonfiction in a variety of genres (essays, history, biography). I did well with a similar goal last year, in part because I kept a list so I will do the same this year using this post. 
I am not counting the poetry books toward the nonfiction count, but plan to track both here. If I blog about a specific book once I finish it I will link to the post. I am also doing the Nonfiction Reader Challenge and will note the categories (where applicable) each book fits into on this list.
