Every November, many readers celebrate nonfiction books by reading nonfiction books about anything throughout the month. Last year I participated a bit by reading several books and listing some nonfiction books that I loved and would love to read. Check out the hosts of this lovely event at What’s Nonfiction, Doing Dewey, Sarah’s Bookshelves, Shelf Aware, and JulzReads.
This time I’m keeping my TBR short but sweet, and hoping to finish all of them by the end of the month! I have all of these books in my personal collection and I am definitely in a huge nonfiction mood, so I’m super excited to read all of these.
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
This was a paperback that has stayed very popular amongst nonfiction books for years and years, and I decided to buy it in Book Depository when it was randomly on sale. I felt like I would love to learn more about thinking, the brain, and the human mind, and this sounds like something fascinating and out of my comfort zone that is also well-loved.
The Feather Thief by Kirk Wallace Johnson
This unique nonfiction book is about feathers, fishing, a museum thief, and some sort of heist… with such a niche topic but lots of great reviews, I’m super eager to pick this one up. Added with the lovely cover and the indication that this sounds more like a mystery novel rather than a nonfiction book!
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell
Huge thanks to my boyfriend for lending me his copy of this book! I really liked Gladwell’s collection of essays, What the Dog Saw, so I’m excited to read a full-length book of his. I really like his approachable and fun writing style. Although I’ve heard mixed reviews about this one, I hope I can learn something from this.
The following books are also nonfiction books that I own that I might pick up.
What books do you plan on reading this November, be it nonfiction or not? Let’s talk about them in the comments below.
