πŸ“š Nonfiction November 2020 Is Coming!

Hello my fellow bookworms, I am pleased to announce the upcoming Nonfiction November 2020, a month-long reading event, that helps us celebrate our non-fiction reading, which I really enjoyed taking part in last year.

What is it all about I hear you cry?! Well… Throughout the month of November, our hosts: Katie, Julie, Leann and Rennie, invite us to put non-fiction at the top of our reading lists and encourage discussion with a series of weekly topics. Each week’s prompt will be posted at that host’s blog, on the Monday of each week, with a link-up where you can share your post on the topic anytime throughout that week. And here is this year’s schedule and topics:

Week 1: (November 2-6) – Your Year in NonfictionΒ (Leann @Β 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 @Β Julz Reads):Β This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a β€œIf 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 @ What’s Nonfiction):Β 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 @Β Doing Dewey):Β 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!


I am really looking forward to taking part again this year, although I am not sure if I will manage all the week’s topic, but I definitely plan on sharing what non-fiction I have been reading so far this year for Week One’s topic. Look forward to seeing you for that post! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ˜ƒ

Now over to you: Are you planning to take part in this event? Have I managed to tempt you take part if you haven’t before? Any non-fiction reading plans for November?

  1. At last a challenge I feel vaguely qualified to take part in. Its been a funny old reading year, but the only thing I seem to be able to process fully at the moment is non-fiction. Do we use a different part of our brains for it or something? I look forward to reading your posts.

    1. Alyson, I really hope you’ll be able to take part in this event too and while it has been a fully old reading year for many of us, I am pleased to hear you’ve still been able to enjoy your non-fiction reading. I don’t know about a different part of the brain, but I know what you mean about being able to read fiction and non-fiction when I am different moods, and I can often find non-fiction comforting in difficult times.

  2. I feel like I’m getting my blogging mojo back, so I’m really excited about Nonfiction November this year!

  3. I’m not sure if I’ll be taking part as I’ve read so little non-fiction this year, but I could still be tempted to join in. If not, I’ll look forward to reading everyone else’s posts!

    1. Judy, I hope I can tempt you with some of the non-fiction books I have read this year πŸ™‚ However it also sounds like you’d be set up with lots of non-fiction to share for week one of this event, too! πŸ˜‰

  4. These are such interesting topics! I look forward to seeing which weeks you join in. I try to read at least one non-fiction book each month, including this month with all my spooky reading!
