Your Year in Nonfiction: Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
Nonfiction tends to be a slump-busting genre for me, and this year is no exception. It's been a particularly slumpful year, and nonfiction always seems to be waiting in the wings to bail me out.
So far it's a toss up as to my favorite nonfiction read. It's really down to Smoke Gets In Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory and Tender At the Bone: Growing Up at the Table. Could two nonfic books be more different? One about a crematory and one about growing up with food. Errr...
I've read less nonfiction than usual this year, which is a shame. I really do love it, and it really does help even out my reading mojo. Luckily, I have quite a few nonfiction titles in the hopper...both physical copies and plenty hanging out on my ereader. This has been a serious year of comics reading for me, so I'm hoping to dive into some nonfiction on the subject. In particular, The Secret History of Wonder Woman, by Jill Lepore.
