Well, one wonderful thing about the year going by so quickly is that it’s already almost Nonfiction November again! I’m excited to be helping to host, along with Julz of Julz Reads, Rennie of What’s Nonfiction, and Leann of Shelf Aware. We’ll be using the #NonficNov hashtag to share our weekly discussion posts starting November 2nd. The Instagram challenge is returning too, with details to come. We’d appreciate sign-up posts or tweets to help spread the word, but they’re not required. Join us as you like and at your own pace 🙂 We’ll have link-ups every week, where you can share any responses you write for the discussion prompts or nonfiction reviews you post during the month. And without further ado, here’s the discussion prompt schedule:
Week 1: (Nov. 2 to Nov. 6) – Your Year in Nonfiction (Leann of Shelf Aware): Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Week 2: (Nov. 9 to 13) – Book Pairing (Julz of Julz Reads): This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.
Week 3: (Nov. 16 to 20) – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert (Rennie of What’s Nonfiction): 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 4: (Nov. 23 to 27) – New to My TBR (Katie at Doing Dewey): It’s been a month 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
I can’t wait! Let me know if you’re planning on joining us or if you have any nonfiction books you can’t wait to read.
