#NonFicNov 2018, Week 5 ~ New to My TBR

Week 5: (Nov. 26 to 30) – New to My TBR (Katie @ 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!

The biggest lesson I learned during the first year I participated in #NonFicNov was to bookmark/clip to Evernote every time I added a new title to my TBR. Pro tip of the year, right there. 😉 I was maybe a little more on the conservative side this year. There are so many books I want to read! New additions:

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

This one is on a lot of lists, but I first was reminded of it on Week 1 by Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness.

One more Week 1 fave, this time from What’s Nonfiction?

Not from a themed post, but a November review from What’s Nonfiction?

Bitter Brew: The Rise and Fall of Anheuser-Busch and America's Kings of Beer

Bitter Brew: The Rise and Fall of Anheuser-Busch and America’s Kings of Beer
by William Knoedelseder

bibliographic manifestations was an expert on food and drinks, but this title especially caught my eye.

The Calculus Diaries: How Math Can Help You Lose Weight, Win in Vegas, and Survive a Zombie Apocalypse
The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives
Love and Math: The Heart of Hidden Reality

And a big Shout out to an adventure in reading with a whole list of books on mathematics, a subject I rather enjoy even though I’m really bad at the nuts and bolts of it.
