Wow, this month is flying by! It’s week three of Nonfiction November and this week Becca at Lost in Books is hosting a discussion about Nontraditional Nonfiction.
Nontraditional Nonfiction: This week we will be focusing on the nontraditional side of reading nonfiction. Nonfiction comes in many forms. There are the traditional hardcover or paperback print books, of course, but then you also have e-books, audiobooks, illustrated and graphic nonfiction, oversized folios, miniatures, internet publishing, and enhanced books complete with artifacts. So many choices! Do you find yourself drawn to or away from nontraditional nonfiction? Do you enjoy some nontraditional formats, but not others? Perhaps you have recommendations for readers who want to dive into nontraditional formats. We want to hear all about it this week!
I’ll be honest – this is way less my thing than pairing fiction with nonfiction! I almost exclusively read my nonfiction as traditional print books or sometimes ebooks if I can’t get a physical copy as easily. The one exception is that I love to listen to memoirs as audiobooks narrated by their authors. My favorites so far have been How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran and Bossypants by Tina Fey, but I’ve actually listened to surprisingly few books in this category given how much I like them. So, of course, I’m going to take this opportunity to grow my to-read pile even more this month and ask – Are there any memoirs narrated by their authors that you’d recommend?
