Last year, I had a ton of fun participating in Nonfiction November, hosted by Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness and Leslie at Regular Rumination. So this year, I jumped at the chance to help host and will be joining Kim, Leslie, and Becca at I’m Lost In Books to bring you an event which will hopefully be just as exciting as last year’s!
Like last year, every Monday one of the hosts will provide a discussion question and a link-up for both question answers and nonfiction reviews from the week. Then on Friday of that week, we’ll put together a round-up of everything you’ve added to the linky. We’ll be bringing back some of our favorite discussion questions and adding some new ones to mix it up. We also have a new addition to the event which I think is going to be fantastic – a nonfiction read-along! And you get to choose the book! Just hop to the end of the post to vote on which of the four books we’ve loved sounds like a it would make a good read-along for you. Now, without further ado, the discussion question schedule:
Week 1: (Nov. 3 to 7) Kim – Your Year in Nonfiction: Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Week 2: (Nov. 10 to 14) Leslie – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert: 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 3: (Nov. 17 to 21) Rebecca – Diversity and Nonfiction: What does “diversity” in books mean to you? Does it refer to book’s location or subject matter? Or is it the author’s nationality or background? What countries/cultures do you tend to enjoy or read about most in your nonfiction? What countries/cultures would you like nonfiction recommendations for?
Week 4: (Nov. 24 to 28) Katie – 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!
And next, as promised, the Read-Along Poll! Let us know which of these wonderful books you’d most like to read along with us.
