I saw so many people declare their participation in this that I felt encouraged to give it a go! I have been working on getting my Non-fiction quota to something more substantial and enjoy the process, so participating in Nonfiction November seems to be an exciting way to do just that.
Week 1: (Oct. 28 to Nov. 1) – Your Year in Nonfiction (Julie @ Julz Reads): Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favourite 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?
What I am hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November:
I have always wanted to read more of Non-fiction. The only thing holding me back is usually that I read them a lot slower than any average 300+ pages fiction book, which means I can read more of the latter than the former in any given time. With access to NetGalley and all these interesting blogs, I have been working my way through some books and hope that a more introspective look back at my nonfiction reading this year could boost the mood to pursue more such books.
Do I have a particular topic that I have been attracted to more this year?
For this, I would have to take a look at all the Nonfiction books I have read and reviewed on the blog. They can be broadly classified under the following headings:
Arts/crafts and cookbooks: I do not know if they actually count, but if they do, they usually constitute a big chunk of my non-fiction reads for any given year
Informational and Discussion based (This would have to be my favourite topic for the year! – Discussions based on Science/psychology)
My favourite nonfiction read of the year/nonfiction book I recommended the most:
This book qualifies under both categories since it is a source of continuous discussion between my husband and me. It is refreshing as well as exciting and makes me look at the natural with whole new respect!
