In Week 5 of Nonfiction November, our host is Katie at Doing Dewey, who asks:
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!
This year’s Nonfiction November has been my richest TBR haul to date. Thank you, good bloggers!
In fact, the recommendations were flying in so fast that I developed a new way to track my TBR. Instead of simply adding the books to Goodreads as “Want to Read,” I started adding books to the Google Sheet that I use to track my reading — at the bottom of the list, where I place upcoming reads. The advantage is that it allowed me to group all the Nonfiction November suggestions and add my own notes in an easy way. I’m kinda excited about this system.
So what’s on the list? Here goes…
In response to my “Become the Expert” request for books about becoming a better human:
Extreme Measures: Finding a Better Path to the End of Life by Jessica Nutik Zitter — recommended by Kazen at Always Doing
Bored and Brilliant by Manoush Zomorodi — recommended by Kelly at Stacked
Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal by Amy Krouse Rosenthal — recommended by Kelly at Stacked

The other books that grabbed my eye…

I’ve already begun reading one of the Heather Havrilevsky books (loving it) and can’t wait to find all these others on the shelves.
Thank you to all the wonderful book bloggers who make Nonfiction November such a fulfilling experience each year!
