Nonfiction November starts tomorrow! This year there are five hosts and five weeks of blog prompts:
Week 1: (November 1-5) – Your Year in Nonfiction with Rennie at What’s 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? Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Week 3: (November 15-19) – Be/Ask/Become the Expert with Veronica at The Thousand Book Project: Three ways to join in this week! You can either share 3 or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).
Week 4: (November 22-26) – Stranger Than Fiction with Christopher at Plucked from the Stacks: This week we’re focusing on all the great nonfiction books that *almost* don’t seem real. A sports biography involving overcoming massive obstacles, a profile on a bizarre scam, a look into the natural wonders in our world—basically, if it makes your jaw drop, you can highlight it for this week’s topic.
Week 5: (November 29-December 3) — New to My TBR with Jaymi at The OC Book Girl: It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!
Do you like nonfiction? Will you be joining in for Nonfiction November this year?
Not sure if I will blog on all these topics. But I do hope to get some nonfiction read during the month. I already have three books here on my pile ready to read:
- Black Birds in the Sky
- The Other Talk
- Sexual Justice
I am really looking forward to reading nonfiction this coming month. I may have taken on too many books but whatever I can get through will be great.ReplyDelete
I actually was aiming for four, but may be able to cram in a few others, depending on the length. I want to peruse the Cybils list to see if any of the nominees call out to me.Delete
