Nonfiction November is Coming!

nonficnov 19

I’ll be taking part in Nonfiction November 2019 again this year. It was one of my favourite events last year – this year it will run from Oct 28 to Nov 30. Each Monday a link-up for the week’s topic will be posted at the host’s blog for you to link your posts throughout the week.

The hosts and topics are: 

Week 1: (Oct. 28 to Nov. 1) –  Your Year in Nonfiction (Julie @ Julz Reads) : 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?

Week 2: (Nov. 4 to 8) – Book Pairing (Sarah @ Sarah’s Book Shelves) : 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: (Nov. 11 to 15) – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert (Katie @ Doing Dewey): 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: (Nov. 18 to 22) – Nonfiction Favourites (Leann @ Shelf Aware): We’ve talked about how you pick nonfiction books in previous years, but this week I’m excited to talk about what makes a book you’ve read one of your favourites. Is the topic pretty much all that matters? Are there particular ways a story can be told or particular writing styles that you love? Do you look for a light, humorous approach or do you prefer a more serious tone? Let us know what qualities make you add a nonfiction book to your list of favourite.

Week 5: (Nov. 25 to 29) –New to My TBR (Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction): 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!

  1. What an interesting way to explore nonfiction, Margaret! I really like these post prompts, and the whole idea of really exploring nonfiction is appealing. I’ll look forward to your responses!

  2. This is a new event to me and I shall resist it for this year at least. But I’ve just had a very enjoyable read through your posts from last year’s November, Margaret, and I’m looking forward to what you bring us this time around 🙂

  3. This is tempting so I’ll see how things are in the run-up to November. I sadly lost my brother a few weeks ago (he’d been in very poor health for almost a year) and as we’re executors for the will am rather busy with that at the moment. But we’ll see. Have fun with it anyway.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear about your brother, Cath. I know that when my sister died I found it very hard to read anything – not just the business of sorting things out, but emotionally too.


  4. Ooo I’d completely forgotten about this event! As I read a good deal of non-fiction, hopefully I will be able to join in with at least a few of the topics this year. 🙂
