This week I am once again joining both Nonfiction November and Connect Five Friday with 5 non-fiction books that have piqued my interest from other bloggers participating in NF November..
It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
Nonfiction November is an opportunity to share and celebrate nonfiction works. This is Week 4, hosted by Katie @DoingDewey. There were so many non-fiction books highlighted this month. on so many different blogs. It was a challenge to just choose five.
Here are 5 I hope to read and are now on my TBR list:
Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11 by Garrett M. Graff. I had seen this book numerous times but the post at the Reading Ladies pushed me to add this book (as well as many others) onto my TBR. So many great books listed in their pairings post.
Shadow City: A Woman Walks Kabul by Taran N. Khan. This book intrigued me and was part of a number of other pairings I have added to my TBR on Book’d Out.
Paris Without End: The True Story of Hemingway’s First Wife by Gioia Diliberto. THis looks like a fascinating read, highlighted at JulzReads, along with other great pairings of books.
The next two books were both highlighted by Nicki at Secret Library Book blog. As she said ” This week I’m highlighting books that came along at just the right moment, they bought me clarity, hope, laughter and calm in an otherwise frazzled world.“
9 Secrets to Thriving by Emma J. Bell
Older and Wider: Menopausal musings from the midlife by Jenny Eclair
I added Older and Wider to my list too 🙂
What a great title – the book sounds dead on too for me now. Hope you enjoy it
Thanks for linking to my Pairings post! Older and Wider sounds great! I hope you enjoy all these!
Thanks Carol. Looking forward to reading them all
Hmm great list here Bev, all new to me but some of them are appealing. Not sure about the 9/11 one, imagine that would be confronting. The last two look good.
Thanks Kathryn. It was fun to do the NF Nov challenge – found so many great books – now just have to find the time to read them
Thanks so much for the shout out I hope you enjoy both books as much as I did!
I am sure I will. The others looked good too.
The Only Plane in the Sky was an incredible read. It gave me so much more information about what happened that day. I was on a plane that day so my experience was very different from most people’s. The accounts of people helping others in the Pentagon and Twin Towers were inspiring and tragic. I hope you enjoy your other nonfiction reads!
Thanks for the added info – it is time to delve more into the tragedy and this seemed the book to do that.
You’ve reminded me that I have Only Plane in the Sky as an audio recording. I know I started it l but never got far into it when the lockdown happened in UK and gyms were closed. That’s about the only time I listen to audiobooks so it disappeared from my memory.
We’re getting close to another lockdown – our numbers keep going up. Stay safe.
Another great list! There are several that caught my eye here.
Thanks Linda. Too many!
I actually added The Only Plane in the Sky to my list last year and still haven’t read it yet, but I’ve heard only good things about it! Thanks for the reminder 🙂
