Nonfiction November moves into to Week 3 with Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert and our host is Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness.
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).
My topic is ... Books about Books. Here are some of my favorites, but I'd also really appreciate your recommendations. As far as I'm concerned, you can never read too many books about books.
84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff"This charming classic love story, first published in 1970, brings together twenty years of correspondence between Helene Hanff, at the time, a freelance writer living in New York City, and a used-book dealer in London at 84, Charing Cross Road."
The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop: A Memoir, a History by Lewis BuzbeeIn this book, "a former bookseller and sales representative, celebrates the unique experience of the bookstore--the smell and touch of books, getting lost in the deep canyons of shelves, and the silent community of readers.
The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe"A profoundly moving testament to the power of love between a child and parent, and the power of reading in our lives."
Dear Fahrenheit 451: A Librarian's Love Letters and Break-Up Notes to the Books in Her Life by Annie Spence
"A Gen-X librarian's snarky, laugh-out-loud funny, deeply moving collection of love letters and break-up notes to the books in her life."
Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman"This witty collection of essays recounts a lifelong love affair with books and language."
Have you enjoyed any of these? What are your favorite books about books?
