Leann from Shelf Aware and Julie from julzreads have given Non-fiction November a new twist.
They encourage us to not only read a non-fiction book this month but also to look at non-fiction books in general.
This week, we are to take a look back at our year of reading and reflect on the following:
1. What was your favourite non-fiction read of the year?
2. Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year?
3. What non-fiction book have you recommended the most?
4. What are you hoping to get out of participating in Non-fiction November?
1. First, I found not just one favourite non-fiction but three that I all enjoyed tremendously. They are all very different, therefore it is tough to choose a favourite. Here they are:
- Khorsandi, Shappi "A Beginner's Guide to Acting English" - 2009
- Orth, Stephan "Couchsurfing in Russia: Friendships and Misadventures Behind Putin’s Curtain" (German: Couchsurfing in Russland. Wie ich fast zum Putin-Versteher wurde) - 201l
- Taylor, Helen "Why Women Read Fiction. The Stories of Our Lives" - 2019
2. Definitely anti-racism as this was such a big topic this year. I can't believe there are still people out there who think someone with a certain colour is better than others. I published a list because I think everyone should read at least one book about it.
See further years here.
