Non-Fiction! There’s a lot of it out there but I don’t read it.
Why not? Because I love reading the same old tropes, that’s why… (that was sarcasm). Actually I have no idea why I never read non-fiction, but that’s all about to change!
I will be taking part in Non-Fiction November.
I decided that I wanted to read non-fiction in November and guess what? Other people do too!
Non-Fiction November (#nonficnov) was created two years ago by Sophisticated Dorkiness and Regular Rumination. Last year, they were joined by two more co-hosts, Doing Dewey and I’m Lost In Books. From their announcement post:
On the Monday of each week in November, one of us will put up a post with the weekly discussion topic. The post will have a place to share links with responses to the topic OR reviews of nonfiction books that are posted during the week. On the Friday of each week, the weekly host will do a roundup of submissions to peruse. Please also share your posts and recommendations throughout the week on Twitter with the hashtag #NonficNov.
They are also doing a read-along, but I probably won’t be participating in that portion of the event.
During November, I pledge to read non-fiction. As much of it as I can. Only non-fiction, if possible. I have a few books that have been sitting on my physical shelf (as well as Goodreads shelf) for ages that are of the non-fictional variety that I will be reading this month. I am making good on my Fall TBR when I said I wanted more non-fiction my life.
Here’s the thing… I like learning. I’ve always loved school. I went to school for Instruction. I like to consider myself a life-long learner. What better way to learn some stuff than read about it in non-fictional books?!
I will be posting my TBR soon, so be sure to check back!
Will you read any non-fiction in November? Please join us!
