You’ve finished reading your book. How do you decide what to read next?
Here is how I decide what to read next:
- I look to my blogging friends.
- I watch what pops up on the “New Releases” shelf at the library.
- I get book titles from podcast interviews (including Modern Mrs. Darcy, of course).
- I take suggestions from in-person friends.
- I write down recommended books listed within a book.
- I notice God nudging me to work on and learn about a specific topic.
But in November? I add to my to-be-read list from #Nonficnov posts. It’s an overload of the best of the best nonfiction books from bloggers who read.
Below are the titles I’ve collected this November from the blogging challenge. I’ll first get samples sent to my Kindle from Amazon. If I like them, I’ll check my library and digital library for a free copy, or see if Net Galley has a free copy for review. If I can’t find a free copy and I really, really think it’ll be a great book, I’ll buy a copy.
Have you read any of these books? Would you recommend that I read them?
