Last year I was an avid reader of other people's Nonfiction November posts and added a fair few nonfiction titles to my wishlist, but didn't take part as such, so when I heard it was back this year I decided to jump on the bandwagon! Nonfiction November is hosted by Kim of Sophisticated Dorkiness, Leslie of Regular Rumination, Katie of Doing Dewey and Rebecca of I'm Lost in Books and is a chance to celebrate some awesome nonfiction during November. Every week there is a different nonfiction topic you can post about, hosted by a different host. Alternatively (or as well!) you can just read and post about nonfiction. That's what I'm planning to do, as I've already been foiled in my attempt to talk about this week's subject (Your Year in Nonfiction) by not having kept track of what I've read this year at all.
I will probably take part in some of the future weeks subjects, but for now I've pulled out a few of the books I'm most looking forward to reading from my nonfiction bookcase. I have three shelves full of nonfiction and I don't read anywhere near enough! I already have quite a lot going on this month so I'm not sure how many I'll get around to actually reading, but these are my most anticipated:
Books Baguettes & Bedbugs: The Left Bank World of Shakespeare & Co. - Jeremy Mercer
Bossypants - Tina Fey
Assassination Vacation - Sarah Vowell
Lady Sings the Blues - Billie Holiday
Tiny Beautiful Things - Cheryl Strayed
I've already started Books Baguettes & Bedbugs and I'm really not sure how I've not read it before! It's lovely and I'm really enjoying it! What should I read next? And what great nonfiction can you recommend to me?
