Nonfiction November 2015

I am so, so excited to be co-hosting and participating in Nonfiction November again this year.  Kim, Leslie, and Katie are great co-hosts and we have another great event for you next month.  Check it out:

Calendar of Events

Monday = Topic and linky
Friday = Roundup

Week 1: (Nov. 2 to 6) – (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. 9 to 13) – (Leslie) Book Pairing: Match a fiction book with a nonfiction book that you would recommend. 
Week 3: (Nov. 16 to 20) – (Becca) Nontraditional Nonfiction: This week we will be focusing on the nontraditional side of reading nonfiction.  Nonfiction comes in many forms  There are the traditional hardcover or paperback print books, of course, but then you also have e-books, audiobooks, illustrated and graphic nonfiction, oversized folios, miniatures, internet publishing, and enhanced books complete with artifacts. So many choices! Do you find yourself drawn to or away from nontraditional nonfiction? Do you enjoy some nontraditional formats, but not others? Perhaps you have recommendations for readers who want to dive into nontraditional formats.  We want to hear all about it this week!  
Week 4: (Nov. 23 to 27) – (Katie) Readalong Discussion: This week we’ll be wrapping up Nonfiction November with a discussion of our read-along book, I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb. Discussion questions will be posted at the beginning of the week on November 23rd. In your post, you can answer these questions and/or write about your own response to the book. As you read throughout the month, you can share your thoughts on twitter using the hashtag #.

Nonfiction Book Swap
Again this year, Bex (An Armchair By the Sea) is hosting a Nonfiction Book Swap to go along with Nonfiction November. The book swap is open internationally and participants should make a nonfiction only wish list. Sign ups are open until November 8, but head over to her blog for all the details!
I hope you guys will participate in this year's #NonficNov!  I'm really looking forward to it!
