Nonfiction November 2020

It's that time of year again! Nonfiction November. And...this is the first year I'm actually planning ahead and thinking, actually thinking, about what I'm going to do! Yay! Me!

Nonfiction November will take place from November 2-30th and be hosted by Katie @ Doing Dewey, Rennie @ What's Nonfiction, Julie @ Julz Reads, and Leann @ Shelf Aware.

Here's the all the info:

We’ll be using the #NonficNov hashtag to share our weekly discussion posts starting November 2nd. The Instagram challenge is returning too, with details to come. We’d appreciate sign-up posts or tweets to help spread the word, but they’re not required. Join us as you like and at your own pace 🙂 We’ll have link-ups every week, where you can share any responses you write for the discussion prompts or nonfiction reviews you post during the month. And without further ado, here’s the discussion prompt schedule:

Week 1: (Nov. 2 to Nov. 6) – Your Year in Nonfiction (Leann of Shelf Aware): Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?

Week 2: (Nov. 9 to 13) – Book Pairing (Julz of Julz Reads): This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.

Week 3: (Nov. 16 to 20) – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert (Rennie of What’s Nonfiction): 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)

Week 4: (Nov. 23 to 27) – New to My TBR (Katie at Doing Dewey): 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.


  1. oooo! Nonfiction November! I totally forgot about it- can't wait to participate. Though, I feel like I haven't been reading a lot of nonfiction this year!

    1. I feel like I can actually plan ahead this year! Look forward to seeing your nonfiction reads this year. Thanks for stopping by!
