Welcome to Week #5 of Nonfiction November. As this event draws to a close, the final topic is New to My TBR and our host this week is Jaymi at The OC Book Girl.
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!
I've added quite a few books to my TBR list this month, but I'll start with the one I've already finished.

This book was recommended by Jen at Introverted Reader, then quickly seconded by several other bloggers. I listened to it earlier this month and rated it 5 stars. Don't miss it!

This is just a sampling of the books added to my wish list this month. There must be at least a dozen more, but this post is already long enough. What books were added to your TBR list this month?
Taste Makers is on my list, too!ReplyDelete
Audrey - I hope my library ordered a copy... no sign of one yet.Delete
I've seen a few blogs recommending How The Word Is Passed this month. I love history, so I added it to my TBR.ReplyDelete
Aj - This is history that almost reads like a travelogue... well done and thought-provoking!Delete
I'm interested in so many of these. Great list!ReplyDelete
Jenclair - The challenge will be to get them all read before next year's Nonfiction November!Delete
My library has Taste Makers, and there's already a queue for it - which I just joined!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you enjoyed How the Word Is Passed, it's definitely on my best books of the year list.
Lisa - I was glad to see your goodreads comment on How the Word is Passed... can't stop thinking about that book! I'll be recommending it to several friends and family members.Delete
As far as I can tell, my library has not ordered a copy of Taste Makers. Might have to put it on my Christmas list!
Great selections. I’m determined to get to Witness before the end of the year.ReplyDelete
Shelleyrae - I'll be interested in your opinion when you get to it!Delete
My dad recommended The Code Breaker to me. I've been hearing a lot of good things about How the Word is Passed.ReplyDelete
Deb - How the Word is Passed was just named one of the NYTimes 10 best books of the year. Definitely worth a read!!ReplyDelete
Interesting books here. Thanks for the updates and links.ReplyDelete
ALL of those look incredible! so many books... . . .ReplyDelete
Care - Almost too many books... my tbr is a mess!Delete
I am adding Tunnel 29 to my TBR list. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Helen - We'll see which one of us gets to if first. It seems reminiscent of Forty Autumns, which was a favorite a few years ago.Delete
My aunt, who was recently visiting, mentioned A Woman of No Importance. I'm eager to get a copy! It sound right up my alley. Good luck with all of these selections.ReplyDelete
Les - I just added it to my Christmas list... and noticed it's on my daughter's list, too!Delete
This was my first #nonficnov and I really enjoyed it, but I did end up with a LOT of new books on my tbr. I missed Devil in the Grove, but have added it now. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Mary R. - I'm glad you enjoyed your first Nonfiction November! This is my favorite bookish event of the year... so many new book discoveries. Fingers crossed we can read them all before next year.Delete
Many of these look good! The spy book especially looks great. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving ... just back now.ReplyDelete
Susan - Welcome back! I added so many books to my tbr last month. How many will I be able to read before next year??Delete
