Nonfiction November 2021 Week 5: New to My TBR

Somehow our clever hosts have managed to squeeze an extra week into the month. This fifth and final week of Nonfiction November we’re hosted by Jaymi @ The OC Bookgirl. Here’s the topic:

“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!” 

Before I dive into my list, thanks to everyone who’s participated this year. It’s been fun and inspiring to see the amazing variety of interests that we all have, and the huge selection of books that we’ve collectively read and recommended. I’ve especially enjoyed making new connections with fellow bloggers and renewing existing ones. Thanks!

I’ve added enough books to my TBR this month to keep me fully occupied until at least next November! Here’s my list:

  1. So many great books here… and how organized to separate them by subject! The Warmth of Other Suns will be one of my favorites this year, so I’m very happy to see it on your list. I hope to read Caste in 2022.

    Your organization is impressive. I dared only to pick five books ( not wanting to bite off TOO much more than I can chew), but The Power of Ritual was one of them. It was nice to come across your blog this year and I look forward to your posts in future. Read on!

    Some brilliant books there, and thank you for including one of mine – I hope you get hold of it and enjoy it! I’ve made a list but I’m reading everyone else’s first as I often find I add the odd one at the last minute …

  6. I appreciate your great roundup! Now I can just come here when I’m looking for another book (as if I really need more suggestions though, let’s be real, lol).
