In lieu of “What Are You Reading” on Mondays this month, I will be posting my participation in Nonfiction November hosted by a different blogger each week. Nonfiction has gone by the wayside in my reading routine and I’m hoping to jumpstart it again this month.
Week 1: November 2 to 6 (Hosted by Kim)
Your Year in Nonfiction: Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions:
“What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year?”
Since I’ve only read 10 books this year in the genre *gasp*, I’d have to say When Women Were Birds by Terry Tempest Williams even though it was written in 2012.
“What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?”
“What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet?”
I’ve read mostly memoirs, self-help, psychology and sociology books. I tend to stay away from politics and want to get back into reading more science books, mostly to do with nature and animals.
“What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?”
A jumpstart back into the world of nonfiction and recommendations of great books I’ve missed. This is my small pile I hope to read this month. I’ve also put others on hold at the library, so we’ll see what comes in before the month is up.
