Nonfiction November has begun! The discussion this week is being hosted by Julie at Julz Reads. Our discussion topic this week is 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?
My favorite nonfiction read of 2017
I’ve read several nonfiction books this year. Interestingly, most of my nonfiction reading was early in 2017 I read 5 nonfiction books by the middle of March, and then didn’t pick up another one until last month. I read 2 relatively short nonfiction books in the humor category.
Here is a listing of nonfiction I’ve read since last year’s Nonfiction November event started.
I’ve enjoyed them all, but if I have to choose one favorite, it is The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Woman by Kate Moore.
The nonfiction book I recommend most
Again, that would have to be The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Woman by Kate Moore.
One topic or type of nonfiction I haven’t read enough of yet
Several years ago I set myself a goal of reading at least one book about each US president or his presidency. So far I’ve read only one, and that would be Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President by Candice Millard. I just read that one this year, so obviously I need to work on this!
What I hope to get out of my participation in Nonfiction November
I want to see what type of nonfiction other bloggers are reading and hopefully find a few books to add to my every-growing to-read list! Most likely I will also add to my list of bloggers I follow! Let the fun begin!
