November 2017 TBR

I don't normally publish a monthly TBR, and November 2017 isn't going to be a normal month. Mainly because my eyes are always bigger than my stomach. I make massive piles of books and know that I will only get through a handful. It can be somewhat dispiriting.

I'm going to participate in two readerly activities this month, so I thought I would think about what I would try to read. Firstly it's AusReadingMonth at Brona's Books. A month long reading celebration of all things Australian. What's not to love? Actually I could probably just participate by blogging all the books I've read but haven't blogged yet, but where's the fun in that? So I scanned the nearest stacks and found these books.

I'm also looking to participate in Nonfiction November. This is a new one for me. I have quite a bit of  nonfiction lying about in the TBR. I'm not a regular nonfiction reader but enjoy it when I do. I'm hoping to get a few of these read this month.

Happily some of them are crossovers, some Aussie nonfiction. And I'm still working my way through my #springreadingstack. Actually I'm not doing too badly with this one. I've read 5/10 so far. (And sadly it stayed at 5/10... but bring on the #summerreadingstack)

What lovely stacks you have 😊
I've heard great things about I Am I Am. And I loved When Breath Becomes Air, although love is not the quite word.

Good luck getting through both challenges & your stacks.

Every year in November I say I’m going to participate in NaNoWriMo and I never do. How about this November I say I’m going to participate in Nonfiction November and I don’t do that?

Thanks Brona, I'm fabulous at stack making... so many stacks... I've had When Breath Becomes Air for a long time in my TBR stacks, it's probably one that I'm most looking forward to. I know I'll only get through a handful of these, but that's still progress anyway.

Oh Deb you read enough nonfiction every month to participate!
