Today for Nonfiction November hosted by Doing Dewey, I have four nonfiction titles that I’m adding to my TBR! These are not all new releases…just new to my TBR.

Thanks for the reminder about Quiet and the mention really appreciate it Carol! 😀
I’m glad you got some good recommendations, and thanks for taking part! I absolutely loved Quiet, one of my favorites.
Thanks for hosting! 🙌😍
I’m not an introvert but like to have them as friends and colleagues. I’m very interested in Quiet. Listening to Between the World and Me in the next few days since I recorded the movie.
Great post, Carol💜
Thanks Jonetta! I’ve found that blogging is perfect for introverts like me! No one would ever know! 😂
I read Quiet years ago and really liked it! It does kind of lean on the idea that introverts are the audience and is heavy on how great being introverted is, but it makes great points about how introverts think and can contribute, and I really liked the parts about introversion being a “learning style.” I liked school, but it was kind of tortuous when teachers always think you need to be talking. When I was teaching during grad school, I tried to build in other ways of participation that weren’t just “raise your hand and say something in front of the class,” and I only really took off participation points for people who literally said NOTHING for the ENTIRE semester of the class. (I mean, I was introverted, but I said something once in a while in class! :D)
I totally understand what you’re saying! In class, I would rather soak it all in rather than talk…..the thought of talking made me so nervous (preoccupied with forming my thoughts) that it detracted from my learning ….in class I found it easier to talk in smaller groups. It’s interesting that as an introvert, I really loved being a teacher and talking! But it was exhausting! When I got home, I wouldn’t say a word to anyone until the next morning!
I also carry on lively conversations in my head and when my husband becomes frustrated that I’m not talking, I suddenly realize that I haven’t said aloud anything I was thinking! I was very engaged but not outwardly expressive. I think I’ll enjoy the book! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
Yes, that’s exactly it! I felt like I processed information by sitting quietly and thinking about it. Talking was often (at best) kind of pointless (I figure I know the answer to the question, and I never felt like I was getting much out of saying it out loud to other people???) And, at worst, thinking about having to talk all the time is stressful and distracting!
I do think being in front of a group (like presenting) is a bit different. I don’t mind talking to people if I have something prepared.
I can only present to 11 year olds! 😂😂😂 I always avoided presenting to staff!!!
I’m happy you were able to find some new books during Nonfiction November.
Thanks! I have a longer list (including some recs from you!) but these are my priorities for winter! Thanks for commenting!
I have loved your posts this month!
Thanks so very much! It was fun!
Hope you enjoy all your new reads!
Thanks for commenting!
Like everyone else 😅 Quiet sounds interesting!
I’ve been wanting to read it for the longest time! Thanks for commenting!
[…] Adding Nonfiction Titles To My TBR #nonficnov 2020 […]
i tried a couple memoirs recently that didn’t gel very well at all, but really enjoyed the book about the club fire! I guess nonfiction can be a mixed bag but true crime is definitely my favorite subgenre
The only true crime I’ve read lately is Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It’s usually a genre I avoid! 😂
I definitely have not read my nonfiction yet! These are reminding me I need to!
I love narrative nonfiction that reads like a story! 🙌
Carol, it is lovely to hear you have already enjoyed one of the new books you discovered during Nonfiction November! 😁 Here are the non-fictions I added to my TBR during this event: https://thebookwormchronicles.wordpress.com/2020/11/23/%f0%9f%93%9a-nonfiction-november-2020-week-4-new-to-my-tbr/ 🙂
Thanks for commenting and leaving your link! I’m hopping over now to read your post!
Thank you 😊
What’s attracting you to the book about introverts – is that how you see yourself?
Yes, I’m very much an introvert! But I also love people…I guess I’m a social introvert! 😂
Some interesting additions, I hope you enjoy them!
I really enjoyed both Quiet and Between the World and Me, so I hope they work equally well for you 🙂
Thanks for your encouragement! 🙌
