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 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 @ What’s Nonfiction): 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!
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! 👋📚😃
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?
