Nonfiction November 2022 Week 5 New to My TBR #NonficNov

Week 5 (November 28-Dec 2): New to My TBR
with Jaymi at The OC Bookgirl

Week 5 of Non-Fiction November (see here) was a lot easier than the previous ones, just look for non-fiction books you purchased lately.

📚📚📚

Week 5 (November 28-Dec 2) - New to My TBR: It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book! Pro tip: Start this draft post at the beginning of the month and add to it as your TBR multiplies. (Jaymi @ The OC Bookgirl)

Adichie, Chimamanda Ngozi "We Should All Be Feminists" - 2014
Clinton, Hillary Rodham & Chelsea "The Book of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories of Courage and Resilience" - 2019
Gillard, Joe "The Little Book of Lost Words. Collywobbles, Snollygosters, and 86 Other Surprisingly Useful Terms Worth Resurrecting" - 2019
Greywoode, Josephine (ed.) "Why We Read" - 2022
Theroux, Paul "Riding the Iron Rooster" - 1988 (Goodreads)
Wood, Levison "Eastern Horizons. Hitchhiking the Silk Road" - 2017 (Goodreads)

I didn't think I had many new non-fiction books on my TBR pile but I found six. I think I read non-fiction books faster than others, I mean I start them quicker after I bought them. I usually have at least one on the go.

  1. The Little Book of Lost Words sounds super fun. I want to read that one. And my nephew who loves words would probably love it, too. :D

  2. 'Lost Words' sounds very much like my kind of thing. I do love odd words and where they come from. My family still uses "collywobbles" but I haven't heard it spoken for a while! I did try to use lonely and unloved words @ work which caused a bit of confusion sometimes. I still can't understand the number of people who didn't know what 'winnowing' meant..... [lol]

    1. I do believe that might just be up your street, Kitten. Someone mentioned it on their blog and it reminded me of Susie Dent (of whom I have several books which I must review at some point).
      And well done to try to use lonesome words, even if not everyone appreciated it.

    1. Good idea, Carol. Thanks for mentioning your name as the post came up as anonymous.

    1. Yes, Emma. And I intend to read it as one of my next non-fiction books. I'm fascinated by that part of our world. And knowing that I will never visit it, I must read a lot about it.

  5. A nice assortment! How do you create the tile with the six books?

    1. Thanks, Constance, I am interested in many different topics and try to read about them all. LOL.

      I have a program called XnView, I can create horizontal and vertical strips of images. So, I first do a horizontal one with the first three books, then another one with the last three and then a vertical one with the two strips. It sounds more complicated than it is. If you don't have that program, I'm sure yours will offer similar works. I had been looking for a nice program with collages, I used to have one but that was discontinued. And then I noticed I had this right on my PC.

      I find that blogger doesn't make it easy to put several pictures in a post exactly where you want them, so this is a good alternative.

      I hope this helps you and you will be able to find something similar.

  6. I read The Iron Rooster Last Year, although I have had it since the 80s I think. It was very interesting.

    1. I had never read anything by Paul Theroux, I'm more familiar with his son's work on television but a member of the book club had sorted it out and I thought, I'll give him a try. Thanks, Lisbeth.

  7. I somehow missed out on Lost Words, but that one's also going on my TBR pile. Thank you so much for participating this year!

    1. Thanks you, Christopher. I thought I might have seen it on your page but it looks like I didn't. LOL. I will report once I've read it but it looks very promising.
