My Year in Nonfiction/ posted in: Reading
In the fall my reading tastes tend to move towards nonfiction. That’s one of the reasons why I love Nonfiction November.
Since the end of last year’s Nonfiction November I’ve read 47 nonfiction books.
- 29 of them took place in the United States
- 5 were in Africa or the Middle East
- 6 were in Europe
- 3 were in Asia
- 2 were in South America
- 1 was in the Caribbean and 1 in the South Pacific
- 31 were written by women
I mostly read narrative nonfiction and history. I’m not a fan of celebrity memoirs but do read memoirs of people I haven’t heard of before. I don’t read a lot of really heavy history that reads more like a textbook than a novel unless I’m really interested in the subject. I’ve written before about what the husband thinks of my reading choices.
Favorites This Year
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve also made two lists for the Travel the World in Books readathon in the last two weeks of Great Books about Food (lots of nonfiction) and Great International Nonfiction. I highly recommend the books on those lists too.
I’m looking forward to getting a lot of great recommendations this month.
