I am woefully behind in participating in nonfiction November but today I turn it all around! Actually, I have been reading non-fiction all month, I have just been terrible about sharing my books and blogging my thoughts.
The first assignment is hosted by Sophisticated Dorkiness and is to look back over your year in nonfiction. I made nonfiction a priority for the first time this year and featured a number of wonderful books on my Non-Fiction Fridays. Below, you can see the covers of nearly all the books I read.
What was your favorite non-fiction read this year?
I would have to say Canada by Mike Myers was my favorite. I listened to the audiobook, which was read by the author, and was fascinated. If you follow me you will know that I have an enormous crush on Canada. I read this when I returned from my first trip through Canada and it both fed my crush and deepened my interest.
Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more than others this year?
This year has absolutely been full of autobiographical memoirs and humorous books. I think everyone needed more things to laugh about in 2018. I have also, as you can see above, been deep into some weird science books.
What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?
Above all others I recommend The Poisoner’s Handbook by Deborah Blum. It reads like a procedural crime novel and is the gateway drug to nonfiction.
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Truthfully, I want the opportunity to prioritize nonfiction in my book selection and read about other people’s love of nonfiction!
Tell me, please!
How do you feel about nonfiction?
