Nonfiction November is Coming!

Nonfiction November starts in just a couple of weeks! This year there are five hosts and five weeks of blog prompts:

Week 1: (November 1-5) – Your Year in Nonfiction with Rennie at What’s 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? 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: (November 8-12) – Book Pairing  with Katie at Doing Dewey: 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: (November 15-19) – Be/Ask/Become the Expert with Veronica at The Thousand Book Project: 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: (November 22-26) – Stranger Than Fiction with Christopher at Plucked from the Stacks: This week we’re focusing on all the great nonfiction books that *almost* don’t seem real. A sports biography involving overcoming massive obstacles, a profile on a bizarre scam, a look into the natural wonders in our world—basically, if it makes your jaw drop, you can highlight it for this week’s topic.

Week 5:
 (November 29-December 3) — New to My TBR with Jaymi at The OC Book Girl: 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! 

Do you like nonfiction? Will you be joining in for Nonfiction November this year?


  1. Good luck! I'll be reading nonfiction all month and unofficially participating in Nonfiction November. I won't get the prompts done, but I'll for sure share my favorite nonfiction of the year so far.

  2. It will be fun to read the way readers respond to the prompts!

  3. I am not a big nonfiction reader, but have tried to read more this year. I have read a lot of memoirs from Indigenous People this year, to learn more about residential schools and the effects of them on generations.

  4. This looks like a fun blog event. I do like non-fiction!

  5. I'm joining in on this fun-filled challenge! Got my list posted and started the Erik Larson book this afternoon.

  6. I'm looking forward to next month and what everyone is going to share.

  7. I have been really bad about reading nonfiction this year so am looking forward to Nonfiction November. Now if I can just choose what books to read...

  8. Really excited about this! I don't read a lot of nonfiction so I look forward to the motivation to pick up more nonfiction books!

  9. I am getting to participate this year! So far, I am doing great.
