Here is the topic for Week 3 (Nov. 15-19):
Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert
hosted by Veronica at The Thousand Book Project

Three ways to join in this week!
You can either share 3 or more books
on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert),
you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic
that you have been dying to read (ask the expert),
or you can create your own list of books
on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).

I realized I quite often recommend some graphic nonfiction, so I decided to be the expert today on that. Plus, I think this genre needs better recognition. In my library, they are labeled as “nonfiction graphic novels”, which really doesn’t make any sense.

Here are a few categories.
Most of the graphic nonfiction books I have read are

BIOGRAPHIES

Do I read Non-Fiction? yes, a lot.

I used to read always 1 fiction and 2 non-fiction (one begin  religion) books at the same time. A bit less now under the pressure of finishing books for tours.
I know, that’s bad, and I keep promising I won’t sign up for so many tours, and then here you go, I receive this proposal of a virtual book tour for a fabulous book that seriously, I can’t refuse…

Today’s question prompted me to look through all the reviews posted (now, my tab of all books reviewed on this blog really came handy!), to see what were my non-fiction reads.

So here are the different categories, and I highlight at least 1 book for each.

Click on the book covers to access my reviews – some are really older reviews, and I was not giving as many details as in my recent reviews, sorry:

NATURE, 3 books

fire season

SCIENCE, 3 books

germs

PHILOSOPHY, 4 books

i and thou

HISTORY, 6 books

I loved very much 4 of them:

Matti Friedman, The Aleppo Codex (2012) audio

and

BIOGRAPHY, 9 books
