Nonfiction November: New to my TBR

It’s an embarrassment of riches, the Nonfiction November experience.  
My TBR just grew by a substantial percentage.  
This is not a complaint. 
So, as we finish out this month of nonfiction splendor, here’s this week’s topic, brought to us to Lory of The Emerald City Book Review:
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!
Here are some of my new TBR highlights, with thanks to each blogger who made thoughtful personal recommendations and who wrote such compelling reviews that I’m gonna have to read these books.

  1. I'm glad I was able to interest you in Code Name Verity, but I just want to make sure you know — it's fiction, not nonfiction. I suppose this topic could include both!

  2. I finished My Beloved World over the weekend and was especially struck by the fact that being 20 years younger than RBG and Sandra Day O'Connor, gender was not as much of an issue for Sotomayor as her minority (Puerto Rican) status. She had first-hand experience with affirmative action at Princeton… a fascinating read!

  3. I didn't grow my tbr list as much as I expected, but mostly because I had a ridiculous number of the books I was interested in on my to-read list already! There are just so many good books to get too. I love your categories for your new reads! They're all topics I'm interested in too 🙂
