Nonfiction November is hosted this year by Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), Katie (Doing Dewey), Veronica (The Thousand Book Project) Christopher( Plucked from the Stacks), and Jaymi at (The OC Bookgirl)— is a month-long celebration of everything nonfiction. Each week, they’ll be a different prompt and a different host looking at different ideas about reading and loving nonfiction.
This week’s (Nov 1 –5) discussion is 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 favourite 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?
I read/listened to 34 books between November 2020 and the end of October this year.
What was your favourite nonfiction read of the year?
I’ve enjoyed lots of nonfiction books over the last twelve months, but I think it’s got to be How To Be Sad by Helen Russell a book that has really helped me a lot since I read/listened to it back in May.
Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year?
It’s memoirs again this year, and I think it’s because it’s not just facts about a subject, but there’s a personal story in there as well.
What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?
Probably How to Be Sad by Helen Russell and And Away by Mortimer Bob Mortimer two very different memoirs that I loved!
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
I’m already enjoying looking back over my non-fiction reads and of course I hope I find some more books to add to my tbr mountain.
