November is coming to an end, and I’ve come away with a significantly longer TBR list than when I started Nonfiction November. My non-fiction to-read list is now the same length as my SF/F to-read list, which is really saying something! This week’s prompt is “New To My TBR”: It’s been a month of awesome nonfiction recommendations – which ones have you added to your TBR? So without further ado, here are my most anticipated non-fiction reads. . .
1. The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher by Lewis Thomas. Katie at Doing Dewey introduces this as “. . . a collection of short but thought-provoking essays which was sometimes humorous, sometimes inspiring, and always an insightful, approachable look at some of the wonders of biology.”
2. This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson. Andi at Estella’s Revenge declares that this is “one of those books [she shouts] from the rooftops . . . just read this book and it will blow your mind.”
3. The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We Shared by Alice Ozma & Jim Brozina. Musings From A Bookmammal writes that this book “[is] a great testimony to the power of books and the joys of raising a reader.”
5. What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast by Laura Vanderkam. Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness says that this book “. . . looks at strategies for maximizing mornings, weekends and work.”
6. Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink. Lu (Leslie) at Regular Rumination as well as several others were all reading this, and I thought the plot sounded really interesting.
I want to thank Lu and Kim for hosting Nonfiction November this month – it’s been a blast meeting new people and bonding over such a wide variety of books! I’m looking forward to reading more non-fiction throughout the next year and expanding my literary horizons.
