Hey you! Are you tired of bad news? Then have I got some wondrous news for you — it’s almost time for Nonfiction November!
Yes, just like the Grinch couldn’t stop Christmas from coming, the tire fire that is 2020 can’t stop Nonfiction November.
Throughout the month of November, Katie @ Doing Dewey, Julie @ Julz Reads, Leann @ Shelf Aware, and me, Rennie, invite you to put nonfiction at the top of your reading list with us. Each week’s prompt will be posted at that host’s blog on Monday with a link-up where you can link your post on the topic throughout the week.
This year’s schedule:
Week 1: (November 2-6) – Your Year in Nonfiction (Leann @ Shelf Aware): 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?
Week 2: (November 9-13) – Book Pairing (Julie @ Julz Reads): This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.
Week 3: (November 16-20) – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert (Rennie [me!] @ What’s Nonfiction [here!]): Three ways to join in this week! You can either share 3 or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).
Week 4: (November 23-27) – New to My TBR (Katie @ Doing Dewey): 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!
You can participate in the Instagram photo challenge even if you don’t have a blog. Daily prompts can be found on Instagram with Julie (@JulzReads) and Leann (@Shelf_Aware_) and using the hashtag #NonficNov.
Or maybe you just feel like trying to read more nonfiction, which, yes, you should do that and this is the perfect time! Then come talk with us about it. And of course feel free to dip in and out of whichever posts you’d like.
Will you be taking part in Nonfiction November with us? I hope so!
