Well, I wasn’t really planning on joining up with another reading event/challenge thing this year, but here we are!
The point of Nonfiction November is to read, discuss, and otherwise celebrate all the awesome nonfic lit out there. The hosts have decided on weekly blog post topics, and this week’s topic is….
Your Year in Nonfiction
Well, the year isn’t quite over yet, but here we go:
What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year?
Wow, super hard question right out of the box! I’ve been lucky enough to have read some FANTASTIC nonfiction this year. If I had to pick just one favorite, though, I think I’d pick The Food Lab by J. Keni López-Alt — it’s basically my idea of a “perfect” cookbook.
What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet?
I’ve been meaning to read more in the way of science nonfic, particularly medical science simply due to the nature of my IRL job. But I also signed up for the Foodies Read challenge again this year, and I haven’t read nearly as many “foodie” books as I meant to. Oops.
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Well, partly I just needed a little push to get me to tackle another one or 2 nonfiction titles on my shelves — I’m also doing the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge thing, and yet I still have quite a few books languishing unread downstairs in our little dining-room-turned-library. I’m also interested in interacting with other bloggers who read NF on the regular, too, because the majority of the book bloggers I follow tend to focus mostly on fiction.
This should be fun! Are you doing the challenge too? Holler at me.
