If you’ve been around for awhile, you’ve probably found yourself thinking, “Does this woman ever read any non-fiction?!” The answer is no, not that often. But this coming month is an exception, because it’s Non-Fiction November here at the blog!
I tried this last year as a kind of experiment, and really had fun with it. I don’t read non-fiction that often, so I’ve been looking forward to November more than I thought I would.
I’ll still be participating in Top 10 Tuesday and WWW Wednesday, but every Sunday and Thursday in November I’ll be posting a review of a non-fiction book. I’ll be choosing from the following list:
- The Happiness Project (Gretchen Rubin)
- As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto: Food, Friendship, and the Making of a Masterpiece (Joan Reardon)
- Better Off: Flipping the Switch on Technology (Eric Brende)
- The Mistress Contract (She and He)
- I Am Hutterite: The Fascinating True Story of a Young Woman’s Journey to Reclaim Her Heritage (Mary-Ann Kirby)
- Marriage Confidential: The Post-Romantic Age of Workhorse Wives, Royal Children, Undersexed Spouses, and Rebel Couples Who are Rewriting the Rules (Pamela Haag)
- Malled: My Unintentional Career in Retail (Caitlin Kelly)
- Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West (Dorothy Wickenden)
- The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time (Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson)
- Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture (Peggy Orenstein)
This year’s Non-Fiction November kicks off with a review on Thursday, November 3rd. I’m looking forward to some great books!
What are your thoughts on fiction vs. non-fiction? Have you read any of these books?
