#NonfictionNovember

I started this during #nonfictionnovember and just finished tonight. Hazzard details his life as an EMT and then paramedic, working for Grady in Atlanta. Naked strangers are the milder side of what's in this book, so if you're squeamish this is not the book for you! But while Hazzard lets the reader into the gory side of EMS, he is also compassionate about the community he served.

Kappadeemom I enjoyed this one! 9mo

My November reads, not pictured is Hamilton: The Revolution, which I read in honor of finally seeing the show! I originally planned to only read nonfiction for #NonfictionNovember but I ended up being pretty balanced. My favorite nonfiction was Sally Fields memoir and my favorite fiction was A Very Wide Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi. Also I've read quite a bit of Becoming by Michelle Obama but I'm taking my time with it!

JaclynW I loved A Very Large Expanse of the Sea! 💕💖💕💖 8mo

I'm always trying to read history not taught in school. The story of Ona Judge, who escaped slavery in the household of George Washington, gives another aspect of the founding of the U.S. This isn't as action-packed as the subtitle implies and there's quite a bit of speculation by the author, but it was a worthwhile read. Robin Miles is a great narrator. #nonfictionnovember

JenReadsAlot I really liked this one on audio as well! 9mo
MallenNC @JenReadsAlot Robin Miles does a great job. I've heard her on other books. 9mo

November turned out to be a month with quite a variety of reads, and I couldn‘t quite pick a favorite fiction. Zoli (for #LitsyBookClub) and The Eyre Affair are very different, but both so good! I was fascinated by The Art of Fermentation and look forward to trying more of the methods described. I was also happy to complete a few books for #NonfictionNovember, more nonfiction than in recent months.

sprainedbrain Great month! 👏🏻 9mo
sammisho I didn't know Claire had a book!!! I just adore her! 9mo
Daisey @sprainedbrain Thank you! 9mo
Daisey @sammisho I really appreciated the information it gave about her background and entire life spent working in Missouri up to being published in 2015. I listened to it in the week leading up to the election. 9mo

#NonfictionNovember was a success! It‘s not all I read, but I did get 10 NF reads in. And my favorite of the month was a NF - Blackout by Sarah Hepola.

Freespirit Amazing work..I must read more non fiction 😊 9mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great job!! 9mo
Sweettartlaura @Freespirit the more of it you read, the more you like it 🙂. You also come to know what you like better. I avoided it for so long. Now I read at least 2 or 3 NF a month ❤️ 9mo

#wrapups for #tometopple and #nonfictionnovember

I read Jackie After Jack by Christopher Andersen and about 100 pages of Love, Janis by Laura Joplin.

Still have about 200 pages of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix left which I‘m currently trying to finish before getting back into Love, Janis.

A wonderful bookstore, a delightful book. Reading this was like returning to Paris for a few hours every night. #nonfictionNovember

#NoFemmeber #NonFictionNovember

I read this memoir last year & it wrecked me. I thought it would be difficult to have any #sympathy for the mother of a mass murderer but I did, in boat loads! Sue writes “To the rest of the world, Dylan was a monster, but I had lost my child.” And that‘s the heart of this memoir. A parent can‘t really KNOW their child, as much as we would like to believe we can. And this “monster” was still her son.👇🏼

Cinfhen Thank you to my awesome co-host @Billypar for sharing his favorite female fronted bands 💕🙌🏻💄and don‘t forget to check out #WinterWonderland starting tomorrow with the fabulous @TrishB and Mr. TrishB 🖤 9mo
Cinfhen And thanks to all who joined in and played along 💋💋💋💋 9mo
Megabooks Great choice! This is on my shelf, but I haven‘t read it yet. The print is too small, but I‘ll see if I can get the ebook or audiobook. Thanks for reminding me! 💙💙 9mo

Lovesbooks87 I felt the same way. After reading Columbine I was like how did these parents not see this coming. When I saw she had written a book I had to read it. 9mo
Cinfhen Definitely listen or read the ebook @Megabooks it‘s really heartbreaking and VERY insightful. I still want to read Columbine @Lovesbooks87 but the heft is putting me off!! (edited) 9mo
CarolynM Thanks yet again @Cinfhen for such an interesting bunch of prompts. Sorry I was so uninspired all month. I loved your month of non fiction choices🙂 9mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen @Lovesbooks87 I did the Columbine audiobook and loved it. That also gave me more #sympathy towards Dylan and more anger towards Eric. 9mo
Kalalalatja I read both this and Columbine this year, and both were heartbreaking and amazing. I read Columbine in print, and even though it isn‘t really a page turner, I got through it so fast because of the way Cullen writes 👍 9mo
Cinfhen Thanks @CarolynM Missed you this month 😘Hopefully @TrishB playlist will give u some motivation xx 9mo
Cinfhen I‘m definitely going to try and pick up Columbine this new year @Kalalalatja @Megabooks and it‘s interesting that Eric‘s parents have remained pretty silent 🤔 9mo
JennyM This book broke my heart A LOT. 9mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Well of the two of them, he seemed the most evil, so I wouldn‘t be dying to be questioned about how my son turned out that way. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9mo
Cathythoughts I havnt read , but I think I would have sympathy for her too ♥️💔💔 9mo
TrishB A great month of picks 😁 thanks to you and @Billypar 9mo
Billypar I forgot about this one! Definitely want to check this out, as sad as it must be. I had a great time co-hosting this month ☺️ Looking forward @TrishB to #WinterWonderland!! ❄️☃️ 9mo
Reviewsbylola I really admire Sue Klebold. She has put herself out there despite the negative reactions I‘m sure she received. 9mo
Cinfhen Yes @Billypar @Reviewsbylola Sue is another victim in this tragedy. And it was fun co-hosting, Vinny!!! BTW Steph and the gang are back soon ( maybe April???) 9mo
Reviewsbylola Yes, April!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 9mo
Cinfhen I checked I have @vivastory for January @TheKidUpstairs for February @Lizpixie for March and my lovely Dargusch Girls @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Meredith3 and the awesome @Mdargusch for April!!!! 9mo
vivastory I'm looking forward to it! I have a fun take on the challenges too! 9mo
Suet624 I completely agree with you. May none of us ever find ourselves in her position. An important read. 9mo
Meredith3 Loved this book, soooo terribly sad though 😓 9mo
Cinfhen Can‘t wait to see what you have in store @vivastory 😍 9mo
Cinfhen Hi @Meredith3 can‘t wait to have you back hosting ❤️Happy Holidays to you xx 9mo
Cinfhen It‘s overwhelmingly sad @Suet624 because I‘m sure she was a good mother and that‘s the part that is hard to wrap your head around. It‘s natural to want to blame someone. 9mo
