Fall is here, which means it’s almost time for Nonfiction November!
Throughout the month of November, fellow bloggers Katie (Doing Dewey), Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), Christopher (Plucked from the Stacks), Rebekah (She Seeks Nonfiction) and I (The OC Book Girl) invite you to celebrate Nonfiction November with us.
Here’s how it works: Each Monday, our weekly host will post our topic prompt and include a “linky” where you can link your posts and connect with other bloggers.
We are excited to welcome back our hosts from last year and very pleased to welcome a new host: Rebekah from She Seeks Nonfiction. I’m really looking forward to seeing the responses to the NEW topic she has planned for Week 4!
Here are the topics for each week:
Week 1: (Oct 31-Nov 4) – 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? 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? (Doing Dewey),
Week 2: (November 7-11) – Book Pairing: This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title (or another nonfiction!). 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. Or pair a book with a podcast, film or documentary, TV show, etc. on the same topic or stories that pair together. (What’s Nonfiction),
Week 3: (November 14-18) – Stranger Than Fiction: 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. (Plucked from the Stacks)
Week 4: (November 21-25) – Worldview Changers: One of the greatest things about reading nonfiction is learning all kinds of things about our world which you never would have known without it. There’s the intriguing, the beautiful, the appalling, and the profound. What nonfiction book or books has impacted the way you see the world in a powerful way? Do you think there is one book that everyone needs to read for a better understanding of the world we live in? (She Seeks Nonfiction)
Week 5: (November 28-Dec 2) – New to My TBR: 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! Pro tip: Start this draft post at the beginning of the month and add to it as your TBR multiplies. (The OC Bookgirl)

WooHoo! Can’t wait Carol!
I’m excited for this and you!
Thanks DJ! I appreciate you!
Favorite time of year!!! Can’t wait!
Exciting, and I love the new topic and am glad the stranger than fiction one is back. Also this year I have been saving up pairings in a draft post ALL YEAR as I find that one the hardest (basically because I don’t really read historical fiction). I am also doing Novellas in November and AusReadingMonth and have one book that fits all three categories! Thank you for your efforts with this again, a highlight of my year.
Yay! Looking over the categories now!
