Nonfiction November Week 5: My Growing TBR List


Nonfiction November is a wrap! It's been a great month and I truly enjoyed my nonfiction reading. Week 5 is hosted by Lory at Emerald City Book Review.  Here is the prompt:
New to My TBR: 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!
First, I need to apologize. I forgot to note who mentioned these books! I'd go back and look if I had time, but...  If you talked about any of them this month, please let me know and I will add your link. Next year I'll be sure to add names as the books join my TBR.

Second, this is not a complete list of books added to my list. I'm afraid that post would be far too long.

And finally, I want to thank our hosts for planning and organizing this event.  Well done, ladies!

Now the question is how many of these books can I read before next year?

  1. I tried Train to Crystal City awhile back and ended up putting it down...but I think the timing was off....read it right after another nonfiction that dealt with internment camps during WWII

    1. Sarah - I can see where two in a row might be too much for that topic...

  2. I just added Upstream to my list! It sounds really good. I inadvertently took part in the November challenge lol - all I read in November were nonfiction books for class. I love your list of new books to read. :)

    1. Erin - I'm already on the library hold list for Upstream, but may not get it before we leave for the winter. May have to get on the FL hold list, too!

    1. Nick - I'm thinking of listening to Destiny of the Republic on our drive to Florida... sounds like one my husband would enjoy, too.

    2. Destiny of the Republic is just wonderful, and the audiobook version is great. . . though there are a couple of scenes with medical procedures that are kind of gory. The story is just fascinating, though. I didn't know anything about Garfield and he was an amazing guy.

  6. You have some promising reading in front of you. As to how many of them you will get to by years end, I do not know. I would like to fit in several of my new finds this month, but with the season and all, we'll see. Happy reading.

  8. I've participated in Nonfiction November three times now, and every year I gather so many recommendations I can never read them all...but I keep trying! I'm glad you enjoyed this year.

  11. Some really interesting titles! I don't read a lot of nonfiction so posts like this remind me to not forget to add nonfiction reads to my radar. Hope you get to these books so you can tell us about them :)

  12. Nonfiction November is a really good event each year. So many good books -- so little time! I've noted a few titles down as well -- I like your Supreme Court books.
