Participating in Non Fiction November 2020

I had a great reading month for Non Fiction November in 2019 and I'm planning on participating again this year. Hosted by A Book Olive, you only need to read 1 non fiction book to participate in the challenge, or try to read a little more non fiction than you ordinarily would.

I'm also participating in the year long 2020 Non Fiction Reader Challenge hosted by fellow Aussie Shelleyrae over at Book'd Out.

Reflecting on my reading so far this year, I was surprised to discover I've read 8 more non fiction books than this time last year.

Here are the non fiction titles I've read so far in 2020, listed in chronological order:
  • I'll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara
  • Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? by Caitlin Doughty
  • Shark Arm by Phillip Roope & Kevin Meagher
  • Our Rainbow Queen by Sali Hughes
  • The Erratics by Vicki Laveau-Harvie
  • Any Ordinary Day by Leigh Sales
  • Sleeping with David Baddiel by Geoff Jein
  • Death Is But A Dream: Finding Hope and Meaning at Life's End by Christopher Kerr
  • The Innocent Reader: Reflections on Reading & Writing by Debra Adelaide
  • My Smoko Break by Hayley Maudsley
  • This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor by Adam Kay
  • Find Your Light by Belinda Davidson
  • Reasonable Doubt by Dr Xanthe Mallett
  • Lucid Dreaming Made Easy by Charlie Morley
  • Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language by Gretchen McCulloch
  • How To Break Up With Friends by Dr Hannah Korrel
  • Splitting - The Inside Story on Headaches by Amanda Ellison
  • Rebel Without a Clause by Susan Butler
Underland by Robert Macfarlane, The Ultimate Bucket List by Dixe Wills and Sh*t Moments in New Zealand Sport by Rick Furphy & Geoff Rissole book covers
Now, onto the challenge. Here are some of the titles (listed alphabetically by author) I'm thinking of reading for the challenge:
  • Sh*t Moments in New Zealand Sport by Rick Furphy & Geoff Rissole (currently reading)
  • Grave Tales: Melbourne Vol.1 by Helen Goltz
  • Nodding Off: The Science of Sleep from Cradle to Grave by Alice Gregory
