The Kirkus Nonfiction Prize short list has been announced and it includes a lot of books I’m excited about! It’s also only 6 books long and the winner isn’t announced until November 5th (which seems like a date that may be overshadowed by other significant events, but you do you, Kirkus). I’ll be trying to read all of these books over the next month. In case anyone wants to join me or is already reading some of these books, I wanted to make this project public. If a few other people are interested in getting to all of the books, we could even form a shadow judging panel and select a winner ourselves. Either way, I’ll post my reviews as I read these and will share a poll November 1st so we can collectively vote for a winner.
All nominees are in the picture from Kirkus at the top of this post and here’s a link to the announcement where they’re all listed out as well. Let me know in the comments if you want to join my Kirkus prize read-along!
