It’s True: Nonfiction November 2022 is Coming

Days are getting shorter, leaves are changing colors. That can only mean one thing: Nonfiction November is upon us.

Yes, it’s everyone’s favorite month dedicated to all those nonfiction books we’ve read. Each week in November, one of our hosts (Katie @ Doing Dewey, Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction, Rebekah @ She Seeks Nonfiction, Jaymi @ The OC Book Girl, and myself @ right here) will feature a prompt and I hope you’ll join the discussion with posts, recommendations, and some nonfiction chat of your own.

Here’s the lineup for this year:

Week 1 (Oct 31-Nov 4) – Your Year in Nonfiction: Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November? (Katie @ Doing Dewey)

Week 2 (November 7-11) – Book Pairing: This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title (or another nonfiction!). It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story. Or pair a book with a podcast, film or documentary, TV show, etc. on the same topic or stories that pair together. (Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction)

Week 3 (November 14-18) – Stranger Than Fiction: This week we’re focusing on all the great nonfiction books that almost don’t seem real. A sports biography involving overcoming massive obstacles, a profile on a bizarre scam, a look into the natural wonders in our world—basically, if it makes your jaw drop, you can highlight it for this week’s topic. (Me! @ Plucked from the Stacks)

Week 4 (November 21-25) – Worldview Changers: One of the greatest things about reading nonfiction is learning all kinds of things about our world which you never would have known without it. There’s the intriguing, the beautiful, the appalling, and the profound. What nonfiction book or books has impacted the way you see the world in a powerful way? Do you think there is one book that everyone needs to read for a better understanding of the world we live in? (Rebekah @ She Seeks Nonfiction)

Week 5 (November 28-Dec 2) – New to My TBR: 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! Pro tip: Start this draft post at the beginning of the month and add to it as your TBR multiplies. (Jaymi @ The OC Bookgirl)


If you’re a Bookstagrammer, Jaymi (@theocbookgirl) will be running #NonfictionBookParty which will feature a host of challenges, buddy reads, story templates, and even giveaways! Be sure to check out her Instagram for more details.

Here’s a little peek at some of her plans:

Nonfiction November is genuinely so much fun, and I hope to see many of you sharing some great books this year, whether you’re a new or returning participant. If you do, Jaymi has made some amazing graphics you can access here. Feel free to use them as needed—maybe even in an announcement post of your own.

As always, happy (nonfiction) reading!

  1. Non-Fiction is a genre that I don’t read often. I set a goal for myself to read 24 non-fiction books this year (2 per month) but have fallen way behind. I will try to catch up and participate in some of November’s activities.

    1. I hope you end up participating! It’s only been in recent years that I’ve started reading more nonfiction. Loved it as a kid, got burnt out on it by grad school, but I really enjoy it now. Whether you read a lot or a little, the Nonfiction November bunch is very welcoming.

    1. I’m knee-deep in Christmas books, there are a ton of Cybils nominations coming in, and I get to chat nonfiction. Truly, November is a great month.

    1. So glad that you’re participating again! I’ve already been thinking over how I’m going to approach some of these topics. It’ll be a lot of fun this year.

        Same here, Christopher. I’m trying to get my lists together in time so I can enjoy all the other posts in November. And the books I chose, of course.

  4. I’m very much looking forward to it and glad your theme is back as I enjoyed that last year and I’ll look forward to finding some for it. I’ve been collecting pairings all year so glad that’s still there! I am doing Novellas in November and AusReadingMonth too so a busy one for me but getting some overlap in, too.

    1. I’ve heard a lot about Novellas in November, and I wish I had the time this year because it sounds like fun. AusReadingMonth is new to me, but I look forward to following along. And I’m so glad you’ll be participating this year! Though I still haven’t made it through all the books Nonfiction November made me pick up last year … oh well, that’s a problem for my TBR pile.
