This week we are concentrating on the books that are new to our TBR list. I have really enjoyed the posts of the other bloggers that are participating in this challenge, and there are many books that I have put on my TBR list. Thanks everybody for sharing!
But before I share all my new books, I wanted to tell you abut a fantastic book that I just started to read. “Mushrooming: The joy of the quiet hunt” written by Diane Borsato and illustrated by Kelsey Oseid is not a traditional mushroom guide. Borsato encourages you to hunt mushrooms not to eat but for pleasure. Each entry includes not only identification features but also cultural notes. For example, did you know that Paul Stamets wears a mushroom hat made of hoof fungus? Yes, you can buy hats made out of mushrooms. I was into mushroom hunting last year, and I think I am going to pick it up again.
Now onward to this week’s prompt.
I have really enjoyed theocbookgirl’s IG feed (@theocbookgirl). I put several books on my TBR list including:
“Easy Crafts for the Insane” by Kelly Williams Brown
“These Precious Days” by Ann Patchett
“Novelist as Vocation” by Haruki Murakami
“The Hiking Book from Hell” by Are Kalvø
“Sacred Nature” by Karen Armstrong
Also from theocbookgirl’s blog, I really want to read:
“Fastest Thing on Wings: Rescuing Hummingbirds in Hollywood” by Terry Masear
From Pillow Fort:
“Affluence without Abundance” by James Suzman
From She Seeks Nonfiction:
“For Small Creatures Such as We” by Sasha Sagan
I’ve actually already started reading this book.
From Beverley A Baird:
“I’ve Been Thinking” by Maria Shriver
I love how Christopher from Plucked from the Stacks included children’s books on one of his lists. This are the ones I put on my TBR list:
“The Curious Story of Edward Gorey Nonsense! by Lori Mortensen; illustrated by Chloe Bristol
“Exquisite: The Poetry and Life of Gwendolyn Brooks” by Suzanne Spade; illustrated by Cozbi A. Cabrera
I’ve already read this book, and I highly recommend it.
“16 Words: William Carlos Williams & ‘The Red Wheelbarrow’” by Lisa Rogers and Chuck Groenink
From Falling Letters:
“The Great Northern Canada Bucket List” by Robin Esrock
From What’s Nonfiction:
“Tunnel 29” by Helena Merriman
There are also a new to me category called “foodoirs” on another of What’s Nonfiction’s posts.
From Words and Peace:
“Revenge of the Librarians” by Tom Gauld
I’ve already read this book, which is in cartoon form, and I highly recommend it.
There’s a couple of books that I cannot remember, so I know that next year I need to do my information gathering weekly during the challenge.
I’m planning on participating in the 2023 Nonfiction Reading Challenge that Book’d Out is hosting. So maybe I’ll see you there too!
