Nonfiction November Week 4: New to My TBR

nonfiction november 2013 Welcome to the final week of Nonfiction November, a month-long celebration of nonfiction I’m co-hosting with Leslie of Regular Rumination! Throughout the month, we’ve been reading and writing about nonfiction, and encouraging other readers to join us through a series of post topics.

I’m feeling a little bummed this is the last week of the month. It’s been incredibly fun to connect with some new bloggers and check out the posts everyone has been writing. This week we’re asking participants to reflect back on the month a bit and give a boost to some new nonfiction you’re excited about:

New to My TBR: What nonfiction have you added to your toppling TBR pile this month? Be sure to credit which bloggers you heard about titles from (if you can remember)!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve added a bunch of books to various wishlists. I tried to pare it down to just a few of my favorites, but know that there are many more out there:

Before we get to the Mr. Linky, a couple of housekeeping notes:

  • I’m hosting this week, so add your posts to the Mr. Linky below and I’ll be back with a wrap-up of sorts at the end of the week (maybe Saturday because of the holiday).
  • If you’re chatting about nonfiction on Twitter, use the hashtag #nonficnov.
  • THANK YOU to everyone who has participated. I haven’t talked to Leslie yet, but I think this is something we would like to host again next year. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please do let us know.

    Yes, yes, yes, you must do it again next year. I think this year was a real success and I’m already planning things out for next year – like really dedicating the whole month to non-fiction.

      I’m so happy with how the month went, especially since Leslie and I didn’t publicize or promote it much. I think we’re both excited to try it again next November.

    Wooohoo! I hope you like Death’s Acre when you get around to it. This even has been AWESOME!

    Oh, I bet The Nine is fascinating!

  • Shannon @ River City Reading November 25, 2013, 4:56 pm

    I really hope you do this again next year (if it wasn’t too much stress!). I totally agree, it was a great way to connect and focus on some book we might not have otherwise picked up. You two were pros, it all went so smooth!

      Gah! I accidently put my old link up there and tried to remove it but couldn’t 🙁

      • Kim December 1, 2013, 9:29 am

        I’m not sure how to remove it either. Oh well 🙂

        The event wasn’t stressful at all, it sort of ran itself once we got going. I thought it was a lot of fun.

    Thanks for doing this feature. Saw a lot of great posts and got a ton of nonfiction added to my TBR!

    Really enjoyed this event!! Hope there’s another one!
    Such a great list. Enjoy At Least You’re in Tuscany. 🙂

    YES, please host this again next year! You guys did such an awesome job running the event this month. 🙂 I really enjoyed the weekly prompts and loved how everyone’s non-fiction tastes were completely different, haha.

    • Kim December 1, 2013, 9:29 am

      I’m always amazed at the variety of nonfiction that people love to read. There are so many styles and topics out there. It makes me feel like my reading is very limited!

  • Stacy @ Stacyverb November 28, 2013, 11:27 am

    Thanks for organizing this! I hope you do it again next year.

  • Masanobu November 29, 2013, 2:07 pm

    Once again, thanks for hosting. I really hope both you and Lu do this again next year!

  • Lauren Smith December 1, 2013, 12:00 am

    Please do this list again! I have enjoyed reading many of the books you have listed. Another great book that you may enjoy is the book, “Rich in Years” by author Johann Christoph Arnold. http://www.richinyears.com What’s wrong with being old? Why should I have to try to appear young? People should respect and honor their seniors. (Gray pride.) It is a lovely and inspiring book!

  • Katie @ Doing Dewey December 1, 2013, 7:05 pm

    I’m sorry to be done too and agree with everyone else that this would be a wonderful event to do next year 🙂 Thanks for hosting!
