It's Nonfiction November time! You can find all of the information over at Sophisticated Dorkiness. This event is a great way to look back at the nonfiction titles you have read this year, add some new ones to your to-be-read list, and think about the importance of reading nonfiction.
If participating does nothing else for me, I'm realizing that I read more nonfiction than I think I do. At this point, I've reviewed 20 nonfiction titles on my blog this year.
What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? That is a tough question. I'm going to call it a tie between Simply Tuesday and I Am Malala.
nonfiction book have you recommended the most? I recommended Quiet a lot around the time I read it. I also talk Erik Larson (Dead Wake) up as a great gateway writer for people who don't think they can be nonfiction readers.
What is one topic or type
of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet? I could read more history and science. I tend to gravitate towards memoirs/biographies or books that I think are labeled as "lifestyle" books.
What are you hoping to
get out of participating in Nonfiction November? I hope to really motivate myself to read more nonfiction and add some great books to my tbr list!
What do you hope to read during Nonfiction November? Definitely Out of Sorts by Sarah Bessey, Sounds Like Meby Sara Bareilles, Headstrongby Rachel Swaby, and Bonhoefferby Eric Mataxas. Then we will have to see what jumps into my hands the next time I go to the library...
