Here is the topic for Week 5 (Nov 29-Dec 3):


Hosted by Jaymi at The OC Book Girl

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 month, I have read about all kinds of fascinating nonfiction books I didn’t know about.
17 (!!) of them told me I should really read them! I listed them here below in the alphabetical order of the book blogs where I found them. Congratulations to Erin at Still Life, With Cracker Crumbs.., who managed to add 3 books on my TBR!!
Thanks to all who participated, it’s always an event rich in many discoveries.
It was also great to post everyday on Instagram thanks to Jaymi who organized the #nonfictionbookparty

  1. I had to laugh when I read that you’d *only* added 17 books! You and I added some of the same books—Nature Journal, Visual History, Place in the Woods—but I also second the recommendations of What It’s Like to Be a Bird and World of Wonders.


  2. Nice adds! I’ve added a few but not too many, however all these posts are leading me to books I didn’t catch the first time, so I’m not publishing my post until the end of the week!
