I may still be in the thick of Frighteningly Good Reads but I am already looking forward to NonFiction November 2021 that starts….next week!. This is one of my favorite things about the fall. A whole month dedicated to NonFiction books is glorious!
I will still be Reading with Joy and so I shall go where the mood moves me. However, I have been collecting a huge stack of books to pick from over the past few months. Here are some that are in the running.
MY BEAUTIFUL STACK
Obviously I won’t be able to read all of these beautiful books this month but I like to have more than I need so I can read with joy.
NONFICTION NOVEMBER SCHEDULE
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 2: (November 8-12) – Book Pairing with Katie at Doing Dewey: This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.
Week 3: (November 15-19) – Be The Expert/ Ask the Expert/ 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 Bookgirl: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!
If you are looking to get into reading more NonFiction or you don’t know where to start, this is the right place to look! The hosts for NonFiction November are welcoming and wonderful and I always walk away with so many wonderful recommendations.
Tell me, please! Do you read a lot of NonFiction?
Love Nonfiction November and can’t wait to start posting!
I love, love, LOVE that you’ve already got this planned out and such a wide range of books too! Si excited to hear what you get to and thrilled you’re joining in again this year!! 🙂

Thank you! Some of these were recommendations from last year’s participants. I cannot wait to see what everyone is reading this year. This is basically an online fall camp for nonfiction lovers. I’m packed and ready!

It totally is! What a good way to describe it. I’ve found such favorites through it in past years as well. I think it’ll be a great one this year too!
