Those are such great choices, Margaret! Lots of interesting books there, and I hope you’ll enjoy them. The one that caught my attention is the Sacks. I’ve always like Oliver Sacks’ work, ‘though I’ve not read that particular one. Intriguing…
I’m glad one of mine appealed!
Nonfiction November is always bad for the TBR!
You now have a great list of books to draw from for 2021.
A great list for you to enjoy next year!
Lots of interesting non-fictions to get your teeth into here, Margaret! 😁 It is also lovely to see my recommendation of The Cottingley Secret made onto your TBR, too – I really hope you will enjoy it. 😊
It looks like you’ve got a great collection of books on World War II – some really interesting titles, thanks for sharing. Enjoy your nonfiction reads!
Oh yay, I’m glad I could give you some WWII recommendations! Looks like you have a great year of nonfiction reading ahead of you 🙂
I second the recommendations of the books by Larson and Alexievich! And A Woman in Berlin sounds like a great read too. For some reason, I feel like WWII is exceptionally well represented in both nonfiction and historical fiction, so it seems like a great time period to read more about!
