Non-Fiction November Week 4: New to My TBR

This is the final week of Non-Fiction November, which was such a great event. This week’s prompt is New to My TBR: What non-fiction have you added to your toppling TBR pile this month? Be sure to credit which bloggers you heard about titles from (if you can remember)!

I have added so many books to my TBR list this month, mostly due to all the great Non-Fiction November posts! Most of which are sitting in Pocket, waiting for me to go through and add everything to my Goodreads shelf. Anyhow, here are the top three books in my “near future” non-fiction TBR pile:

Trip of the Tongue: Cross-Country Travels in Search of America’s Languages by Elizabeth Little

Heard about it from:
Lu at Regular Rumination

I love language learning, and the years I lived in Italy left me fascinated with regional dialects, where the differences are quite strong. I’ve never thought much about the variations we have here in the States. I’ve definitely heard a good variety of accents, though, having moved around so much as a kid. So I’m looking forward to reading this one.

Packing for Mars by Mary Roach

Heard about it from:
Leah at Books Speak Volumes

I’ve had this on my TBR list for a while, but this month it’s moved to the top of my TBR list. I’m about to have a break from reading ARC’s and my library has a copy available. And I love learning about astro-anything! 🙂 Go read Leah’s review and you’ll see why I’m excited about this read!

What Good Are the Arts? by John Carey

Heard about it from:
Ana at things mean a lot

This book tackles a lot of the questions I’ve asked myself over the years as I observe what pieces of music touch my own students, and as I reflect on which ones resonate with me. There’s often a huge contrast there, but I really try (and I think most times, succeed) to respect those differences. Definitely an important read in my line of work, and I think it will enrich my own experiences as well.
