Week 1: Your Year in Nonfiction: Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions –
If I counted right, I've read 61 nonfiction books this year (out of 73), so narrowing it down to one is a mighty big task--although I do think it's easier than narrowing it down to ten! I'd have to say the nonfiction book that rocked my world the most was Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand. It was flawlessly written and so full of heart. It was one of those books I seriously considered reading again as soon as I finished it.
What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?
Gosh, I don't know. I did a lot of talking about Open, Andre Agassi's autobiography.
What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet?
Historical. Presidential biographies, narratives about events and people throughout history, etc. I discovered this year that I just couldn't get enough of all of it.
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Frankly, even if I wasn't participating in Nonfiction November, I'd be reading nonfiction, so I don't think I'll up my n/f reading, but I do look forward to the community feeling of lots of bloggers talking about good nonfiction books. And I'm always looking for titles to add to my TBR list!
