Week 4: The TBR Pile Overflows

Today is Small Business Saturday and the bookstore is hopping. Unfortunately, I am not at the store for the first SBS in 6 years, but I’m there in spirit! As a follow up to last week’s Nonfiction November intro, our employee’s Covid-19 test was negative (thank goodness!) and so things are mostly back to “normal.” I hope all the readers in the US had a relaxing, if very different, Thanksgiving this year and I for one threw myself entirely into baking, which may be why so many of the books I’ve added to my TBR this month are food related…

Week 4: (November 23-27) – New to My TBR (Katie @ Doing Dewey): 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!

The Cooking Gene by Michael W. Twitty
Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction?

I remember reading Rennie’s review of The Cooking Gene when she first posted it and being intrigued, so it was great to be reminded of it during Nonfiction November! I could also have done this post entirely with books from What’s Nonfiction?, but this one jumped out at me most.

The Invention of Nature by Andrea Wulf
Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books

I’ve given this book as a gift multiple times over the years, but hate to admit I haven’t read it! I enjoyed most of the other books in Kristin’s post about nature books, so I figure it’s about time I finally sit down and read this one!

Born to be Posthumous by Mark Dery
Christopher @ Plucked From the Stacks

I’d been waiting for this one to come out in paperback but of course, it never did, so I’d forgotten about it until I saw it again on Christopher’s post. What self-respecting millennial who grew up in the Tim Burton and emo-era wouldn’t want to read a book about the Grandfather or Goth?

The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris
Hanna @ Booking in Heels

Science, medicine, history, all the things that make for a great book for my Nonfiction Book Club! This one is less a TBR add for myself personally, but one that I think my book club will really enjoy. We’ve already picked books through April 2021, but hopefully we’ll get it on the list for the summer/fall!

Race to the Pole by Sir Ranulph Fiennes
Julz @ JulzReads

I was excited to see this one – I first saw Sir Ranulph on an episode of Top Gear and when I discovered he was a modern day polar explorer, I thought that was so cool. Now, given my current polar exploration obsession, I was excited to be able to read his book on Scott’s polar expedition. Downside, this book is out of print in the US, so it’ll probably take some digging to find a copy without going to the major online retailer.

  2. In addition to a ton of completely new TBR books, I’ve come across a bunch of reminders of books I’ve been wanting to read during this event too! And that’s not even considering all the books I’ve added in previous year but not gotten to yet. Someday!
