Nonfiction November: Wrapping Up the Month

nonfiction november 2013I’m a little late with this last post for Nonfiction November, a month-long celebration of nonfiction I co-hosted with Leslie of Regular Rumination! Throughout the month, we read and wrote about nonfiction, encouraging other readers to join us through a series of post topics.

Everyone should give a big round of applause to Leslie, since most of this month was her idea. I was just lucky enough to be asked to partner up on the project. We’re both really happy with how it went, and leaning heavily towards hosting again next fall .

Instead of doing a wrap-up of the posts for week four’s topic, which were all about new books participants have added throughout the month, I thought I would pull together all of the topics and wrap-ups in one place:

If I did my math correctly, we had 69 different posts linked up during the month. I didn’t count the total number of participants, but I know it was more bloggers than either Leslie or I expected. So thank you all for your enthusiasm this month — it’s been great. And if you have any suggestions for a future iteration of Nonfiction November, please leave them in the comments.

    I wish I was around more in November to participate! Hopefully you do host it again next year so I can join in. 🙂

    Great job, both of you! November was too busy for me to keep up with reading all the posts, especially towards the end, but it’s nice to have all the links together to go back to in the future.

    I love this idea, though I don’t think I participated! I think reading more non-fiction is one of the biggest impacts that blogging has had on my reading life. I enjoy it so much now, and sometimes it irks me that we all put it under one genre of “non-fiction.” Kind of like ‘graphic novels,” which are on all sorts of different topics.

      One of the best non-surprise surprises of the month was seeing the variety of nonfiction there is. I feel like I read widely, and then I do something like this and realize that I only hit the tip of the iceberg.
