Here is the topic for week 5:
NEW TO MY TBR
Hosted by What’s Nonfiction?
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 the nonfiction books I discovered this month and have added to my TBR.
Last year, I added 19 books in November, but as I try to reduce the height of my TBR, I have been drastic in my choices, and added only 9:
From #Nonficnov participants:
Reading With Jade:
The Wild Remedy: How Nature Heals Us – A Diary by Emma Mitchell
From bloggers who commented on my posts – they may not all be Nonfiction November participants:
Adventures in Reading, Running, and Working from Home:
The Seafarers: A Journey Among Birds, by Stephen Rutt
Where Song Began: Australia’s Birds and How They Changed the World, by Tim Low
Just One More Page…:
The Ravenmaster: My Life with the Ravens at the Tower of London, by Christopher Skaife
Hmsgofita [sorry, the blogger has an incorrect wordpress ID, and I was not able to find them]
Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds, by Bernd Heinrich
Found somewhere else:
Fabulous Monsters: Dracula, Alice, Superman, and Other Literary Friends, by Alberto Manguel
Packing My Library: An Elegy and Ten Digressions, by Alberto Manguel
The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu and Their Race to Save the World’s Most Precious Manuscripts, by Joshua Hammer
My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer, by Christian Wiman
Thanks to all my fellow book bloggers who gave me the idea to read the books above listed. And to those who helped me reduce my TBR on birds.
WHAT GREAT NONFICTION BOOK
HAVE YOU RECENTLY ADDED TO YOUR TBR?
I found a hundred books I want to try to look for and read during Nonfiction November, and now I’ve just added two more from you. Thank you, Emma. I loved Nonfiction November this year.
I tried to keep my list reasonable this year too. I was moderately successful. Yours sound great, I’m really interested in The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu, heard it’s great!
Thanks for stopping by and confirming about the Timbuktu book
I’m glad I gave you a recommendation and look forward to hearing what you think of it. I might have added one of yours but I neglected to note where I spotted them all!
No problem! I hope you enjoy your list

Nine is still a great number! Hope you enjoy these!
Yes, still too many, lol!!
Not sure if you classify this as non-fiction, but one of the best books out there today is a book by Paul T. Coughlin, and the title is FREE US FROM BULLYING. I would love to see this in all of our libraries and bookstores throughout the world. It is a magnificent new look at the topic and offers help to many across the world. artfromperry
Thanks for the recommendation. If you want to help and give more visibility to it, I highly recommend you paste a synopsis for it on its Goodreads page. Nobody is going to be interested if they don’t even know some details about the book. You can tell the author to do it, or if you are a published author, you can do it yourself.
Also, I am not sure about your hesitation about nonfiction. The book does not seem to be a novel/play, so obviously, it would be nonfiction.
I added sooo many!

That’s always the danger in November!
