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
by John Carreyrou
This one is on a lot of lists, but I first was reminded of it on Week 1 by Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness.
Conan Doyle for the Defense: The True Story of a Sensational British Murder, a Quest for Justice, and the World’s Most Famous Detective Writer
by Margalit Fox
A best-of-the-year biography from Words And Peace.
The Library Book
by Susan Orlean
One more Week 1 fave, this time from What’s Nonfiction?
My Losing Season: A Memoir
by Pat Conroy
I love a good sports story and I’ve never read any Pat Conroy! Rec from Sarah’s Book Shelves.
Everything is Normal: The Life and Times of a Soviet Kid
by Sergey Grechishkin
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
by William Knoedelseder
bibliographic manifestations was an expert on food and drinks, but this title especially caught my eye.
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.

I’ve heard so much about The Library Book, I really want to read it!
so glad I contributed to your list. Mine will be live on Wed
It’s always great to find another fan of math! I’ve only read the Calculus Diaries of the ones you listed, so we’ll have to read the other two and compare.

The Library Book is on my immediate wishlist also… I took an interest in Conan Doyle for the Defense too. I hope you’re able to enjoy these titles in the near future.
I love that the local digital library has so many of them!
I’m already on the hold list for The Library Book, but I added Bad Blood to my wish list this month. So many excellent recommendations!
