Nonfiction November 2018!
Whoo! Whoo! Look what I found!!
This event is being cohosted by the following five bloggers:
Before I give you their November schedule,
I reviewed the listing of nonfiction books I read since 2016...and it was pitiful!
(At least in my opinion!)
Week 1 (October 29-November 2): Your Year in Nonfiction
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 is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven't read enough of yet?
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Week 2 (November 5-9): Fiction/Nonfiction Book Pairing
Pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title.
It can be a "If you loved this book, read this!"
or just two titles 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 12-16): Be the Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert
There are three ways to participate this week!
You can share three 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 learn more about--ASK THE EXPERT
You can create your own list of books you would like to read that discuss a topic about which you would like to learn more--BECOME THE EXPERT
Week 4 (November 19-23): Reads Like Fiction
Nonfiction books are often praised for how they stack up to fiction.
Does it matter to you whether nonfiction reads like a novel?
If it does, what gives it that fiction-like feeling?
Does it depend on the topic, the writing, the use of certain literary elements and techniques?
What are your favorite nonfiction recommendations that read like fiction?
And if your nonfiction picks could never be mistaken for novels,
what do you love about the differences?
Week 5 (November 26-30): New to My TBR
By now, it has been a month full of amazing nonfiction books!
Which ones have made it onto your TBR listing?
(Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!)
So, now I need to dig out at least two nonfiction books
that are NOT memoirs to read in November!
Here are two I know I own:
(Huh. There was a TV movie released in 2017.)
