Welcome to Nonfiction November!
Nonfiction November is one of my very favorite blog events. I’m thrilled to be hosting a part of it this year.
To start off our month of celebrating nonfiction, let’s look back at what we have read in the past year.
Celebrate your year of nonfiction. What books have you read? What were your favorites? Have you had a favorite topic? Is there a topic you want to read about more? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
It turns out that most of my nonfiction reading was about food in the last year. That makes sense to me. I made some major diet changes last November. (Yes, I do sit down and read cookbooks straight through like other books so I count them, especially if they are heavy on information like most of these are.)
My major goal for Nonfiction November is to see what amazing books I’ve missed. I get ideas for birthday and Christmas gifts based on what ya’ll have been reading. Winter is my major nonfiction reading season. I can’t wait to fill up my TBR!
Speaking of filling up your TBR – Make sure you keep track of what you are adding for week 5 of Nonfiction November. Here’s the rest of the schedule:
- Week 2
- Dates: 11/6-11/10
- Frances – Volatile Rune
- Title: Choosing Nonfiction
- Description: What are you looking for when you pick up a nonfiction book? Do you have a particular topic you’re attracted to? Do you have a particular writing style that works best? When you look at a nonfiction book, does the title or cover influence you? If so, share a title or cover which you find striking.
- Week 3
- Dates: 11/13-11/17
- Host: Liz – Adventures in reading, running and working from home
- Title: Book pairings
- Description: This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. Maybe it’s a historical novel and the real history in a nonfiction version, or a memoir and a novel, or a fiction book you’ve read and you would like recommendations for background reading. You can be as creative as you like!
- Week 4
- Dates: 11/20-11/24
- Host: Rebekah – She Seeks Nonfiction
- Title: Worldview Shapers
- Description: One of the greatest things about reading nonfiction is learning all kinds of things about our world which you never would have known without it. There’s the intriguing, the beautiful, the appalling, and the profound. What nonfiction book or books have impacted the way you see the world in a powerful way? Is there one book that made you rethink everything? Do you think there is a book that should be required reading for everyone?
- Week 5
- Dates: 11/27-12/1
