Nonfiction November - Week 1

Nonfiction November — hosted this year by Julie (JulzReads), Sarah (Sarah’s Book Shelves), Katie (Doing Dewey), Rennie (What’s Nonfiction) — is a month-long celebration of everything nonfiction. Each week, there is a different prompt and a different host looking at different ideas about reading and loving nonfiction.
The week 1 topic (I am a bit behind) is Your Year in Nonfiction hosted by Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness.
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?

My non-fiction reading this year (25 books not including poetry) has been a mixed bag in terms of topics: some history, some biography, some social science (think Freakonomics), some craft/decorating books, a bit of literary criticism and one true crime.  I liked most of them but I think my favorite was Reckless Daughter, a biography of Joni Mitchell. I'm looking forward to participating in Nonfiction November as a chance to consider what I have already read and what NF I might want to read next.

  1. Sounds like a good mix! I always enjoy social science and I'm getting more into true crime as well.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
