Announcing Nonfiction November 2014!

Who loves Nonfiction?!?  Me TOO.  Excitedly, the wonder-team of Kim of Sophisticated Dorkiness, Leslie of Regular Rumination, and Katie of Doing Dewey, asked me to help out with Nonfiction November for its second year!  Nonfiction November is a fun, but simple and laid-back, month-long event celebrating Nonfiction!  I'm very honored to be included, as these are like the Queens of Nonfiction.  I only hope I can keep up!

On Monday of each week one of the four of us will put up a post  with a weekly discussion topic with a linky for participants to share posts about the weekly topic.  On Friday of each week we will do a roundup of submissions.  We will also be having a readalong.  Leslie was awesome enough to make this collage of the readalong choices (also our button above!).  Below that is a poll where you can vote for which book you would like to read for the readalong!


Here are the weekly discussion topics we will have as well:

Week 1: (Nov. 3 to 7) Kim – 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?

Week 2: (Nov. 10 to 14) Leslie – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert: 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 3: (Nov. 17 to 21) Rebecca – Diversity and Nonfiction: What does “diversity” in books mean to you? Does it refer to book’s location or subject matter? Or is it the author’s nationality or background? What countries/cultures do you tend to enjoy or read about most in your nonfiction? What countries/cultures would you like nonfiction recommendations for?  

Week 4: (Nov. 24 to 28) Katie – New to my TBR: It's been a week 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 think it will be fun and I love the excuse to dive into some nonfiction.  NF doesn't get enough time in my reading life.  How about you?
