Nonfiction November – Week Four

I’ve been participating in Nonfiction November this month and it’s been great. So many new-to-me bloggers in my RSS reader now plus plenty of new titles added to Mount TBR and to my wish list. Which brings us to the week four’s topic being hosted by Katie over on Doing Dewey:

New to My TBR: It’s been a week 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!

So here it goes. It’s a list of all the books and sites that piqued my interest enough that I am now officially “on the lookout” for these books. Thank you to each blogger that participated and surfaced these books for me. There is so much noise out there these days and Nonfiction November turned out to be a great way to cut through that and find some wonderful recommendations.

Nonfiction November (#nonficnov) was a blast this year. So many great books and book bloggers I had not heard of. Thank you to everyone who helped organize it and host all of the recap posts. So many great book blogs to scroll through.

  • The Unpersuadables is new to my TBR thanks to Nonfiction November, too, and I’ve had Age of Wonder on my shelves for a long time – thanks for reminding me!

  • I’m anxious about both of those and the Emperor of Maladies, too. I think I am the only #nonficnov participant who has not already read that one. It popped up on a bunch of lists.

  • I’m excited to try out a lot of the books about Shakespeare I discovered through the event. I love his plays but I don’t know much about him. Thanks for joining in!

  • It was a lot of fun. I’m thankful for the time you and the other hosts put in. Hope you have a good holiday season filled with good books!
