Salam dear friends,
I hope you’re doing great.
Today, I want to share with you my #NonFictionNovember tbr. #NonFictionNovember is a challenge/readathon created by 2 amazing youtubers to encourage people to read more of the nonfiction genre.
They also help the participants by creating 4 -optional- challenges. They encourage readers to pick their books based on these:
New: this means to read a new release, or new author.. Whatever ’new’ means to you.
Contervertial: this is for books with contervertial topics and themes. This aspect may be universally contervertial or just personal.
Important: here you can read about any topic that you are interested in. For me, that would be anything: Translation, Science, Religion, Feminism, Literature, Human Rights, Self help, Cinema, Environment … ANYTHING.
Fascinating: this can mean anything that you find amazingabout the book. It can be the style, the topic, a person, a place. Again, it’s a broad area to choose from.
Remember, the main goal is to read more nonfiction books, so if you hate that genre, give it a try and pick one book this month. If you normally read 1 or 2 try 3 or more, and so on and so forth.
So here is my TBR (and yeah, I know I’m late):
New: Pancakes in Paris
This a 2016 release. It is a book written by an American man who decides to open a restaurant in France. This is more than him telling us about his journey. This is a book about his life, his dreams, himself.
Contervertial: Le Journal d’Anne Frank
I wanted to read this book for a very long time. Actually, I’ve started reading it in French 4 or 5 years ago, then one of my friends had a copy in English, so I picked it up and read it. The problem was that that version was not complete qnd she didn’t have the second part. So here I am, determined to read it in French this time.
This is count for contervertial for many reasons. First it was banned several times. Also, it deals with some contervertial topics and it’s written in a very contervertial period. And finally, it is contervertial because there is still a debate, still some people think that it was not written by Anne Frank herself.
Important: How to Stop Worrying and Start Living
This is a book about living in a better way, living a better life. I started reading it months ago, I enjoyed it, but didn’t finish it. It is beautifully written and I’m planing to start it from the beginning insha’ALLAH.
Fascinating: When Breath becomes Air
This a beautiful book about a beautiful human being. A book that is beautifully written, and that I really can’t wait to read it. I can’t say more, for now.
Honorable ambitious TBR mentions (I may or may not read):
في الترجمة: A book about translation and its relationship with philosophy.
A Life in Parts: An ARC I received that is written by Bryan Cranston. It’s his biography from his childhood to now.
Guns: A reread. This is about the contervertial topic of violence, crimes, and guns in the US. I loved the first time, and I recommend it for sure.
That is all for today dear all. Talk to you soon insha’ALLAH.
