Two great reading events just in time for my long Thanksgiving to New Year’s break! I’m back in graduate school for one year doing a certificate for my job and it has taken up most of my reading time since late August. It will be a relief to be able read what I want. I already signed up for German Lit Month, but have gotten nowhere with that one. Maybe I can find a short novel in translation and get a “two for” out of it? I do that. It’s all just for fun.
Novellas in November (Cathy) or Novellas in November (Rebecca) is new-to-me, but sounds perfect for the fiction I will read in November. Here’s their weekly theme schedule, if you want to play along. The theme starts on Monday.
2–8 November: Contemporary fiction (Cathy)
9–15 November: Nonfiction novellas (Rebecca)
16–22 November: Literature in translation (Cathy)
23–29 November: Short classics (Rebecca)
Nonfiction November is perfect, too, for the stack of new nonfiction titles I’ve recently bought. Katie @ Doing Dewey, Julie @ Julz Reads, Leann @ Shelf Aware, and Rennie @ What’s NonFiction? are hosting this nonfiction reading challenge. (There is also a Goodreads Group with the same title,)
Here is their weekly theme schedule:
Week 1: (November 2-6) – Your Year in Nonfiction
The first week you may write a post about the nonfiction you’ve read so far this year.
Week 2: (November 9-13) -Book Pairing (nonfiction to fiction)
Week 3: (November 16-20) –Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert
Not sure about this one? Here’s my post from last year to give you an idea.
Week 4: (November 23-27) –New to My TBR
If you are new to the world of reading challenges, TBR just means your “To Be Read” list/pile/shelf.
Remember, November is also German Literature Month! My announcement post is here.
But wait! There’s more! It’s also Aus Reading Month! Post coming later this week!
