Nonfiction November: Old Books and New Books

nonfiction november 2014Oh, November, You’ve gone so quickly. I’m sad about that, since talking about nonfiction all month has been so fun. The host for our final week of Nonfiction November is Katie (Doing Dewey). The purpose of this week is to look back on the month and share some of the books that caught your attention:

New to My TBR: 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!

Even though I’ve been awfully slow to leave comments on all of the posts, I’ve really tried to read all of them. As I read and jotted down books that sounded interesting, I notice two things — there were a ton of books I have on my shelves that I just haven’t read it, and a ton of books I hadn’t even heard of. Here’s are five of each.

Five Books Already on My Shelves

Five Books Added to My Shelves

There are many, many more books that caught my attention that I could have included, but that’s what I’ve got. I’ll definitely be revisiting the wrap-up posts for each week when I need more recommendations!

One last reminder that our Nonfiction November Twitter hashtag is #nonficnov. The conversation there is awesome.

Finally, a huge thank you to my co-hosts: Leslie (Regular Rumination), Katie (Doing Dewey) and Rebecca (I’m Lost In Books). This month would not have happened without their hard work and enthusiasm. I don’t think Leslie and I could have manged it ourselves this year, so I am so grateful that Katie and Becca joined us. Check back for a wrap-up for this week from Katie.

And thanks to all of you who have participated this month. I can’t believe how much it grew from last year, and how many different people participated. It’s been so much fun.

    Sea biscuit is good. You should read that one.

      I actually started reading it after the first or second week of the month because I was so excited!

    And I have a completely different list of ten books! There were so many wonderful recommendations that I think absolutely any reader could find something to interest them. I enjoyed the month very much and thank you once again for hosting.

      That is one of the coolest parts, isn’t it? I love that we call can find so many different things to enjoy.

    Thanks for hosting. This month has definitely rekindled my interest in non-fiction, and it has been so much fun reading about lots of different books.

      That’s great to hear! Thanks for joining us.

    having read and loved Unbroken, I REALLY need to read Seabiscuit!

    • Kim November 25, 2014, 8:37 pm

      I really liked it! It’s not quite as harrowing as Unbroken (although honestly what could be?), but really great storytelling.

    I did not participate in Non-Fiction November (I don’t know why! I totally could have.), but I LOVED seeing everyone’s posts about it. I have gotten very into science books recently, mostly because my mind just explodes with the enormity of the universe and everything we are doing to our part of it.

    I definitely found more books on my shelves than I was expecting. Which is good because I am going to need something to hold me over until the gift cards I’m hoping for at Christmas allows me to go on a book shopping spree.
