Looking Back... In an effort to transfer my book journal entries over to this blog, I'm going to attempt to post (in chronological order) an entry every Friday. I may or may not add extra commentary to what I jotted down in these journals.

Nonfiction November is one of my favorite reading challenges. I don't usually participate in all the monthly memes/activities, but I love getting recommendations for new books, as well as spending the entire month reading nothing but nonfiction.
So far this year, I've only read seven nonfiction books, which surprises me. I would've thought I'd read a higher percentage in relation to the 48 books I've finished so far in 2020, but I guess not. To date, I've read the following (click on the links for my reviews):
The Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett Graff (5/5)
Inheritance by Dani Shapiro (3/5)
Option B by Sheryl Sandberg (5/5)
The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson (3/5)
Women Rowing North by Mary Pipher (2/5)
Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson (4/5)
When My Time Comes by Diane Rehm (4/5)
The above photo is an optimistic selection, so I may continue reading from the dozen I've pulled from my shelves (several of which have been there for decades!) until the end of the year.

I'm very pleased with my RIP XV reading challenge results! I selected a dozen books from which to choose and read five, abandoned three, and started one that I knew I wouldn't finish before the 31st, but will still count.
