Nonfiction November Announcement! #theOCBookGirl #NonFicNov #NonfictionBookParty

Fall is upon us, which means it’s Nonfiction November time!

If you’ve been following me, you’ll know I’m a big fan of all things NONFICTION! Imagine my delight to be asked to help host this month long blogging celebration!

I’m so thrilled to join these four fantastic bloggers for the annual month-long dedication to nonfiction.

Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), Katie (Doing Dewey), Veronica (The Thousand Book Project), Christopher (Plucked from the Stacks), and me! (The OC BookGirl)

Each Monday, a link-up for the week’s topic will be posted at the host’s blog for you to link your posts throughout the week.

[Scroll to the bottom of this announcement for details on all the challenges and giveaways we have planned for our Instagram friends.]

Calendar of Events

Monday = Topic and linky

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 The Expert/ Ask the Expert/ 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 Jaymi

  • 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!
