It's the Island Life | Weekly Snapshot

By the time this post is published, we will all be back home, but right this moment, as I type this up, we are enjoying our last day at Daufuskie, a secluded island near Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA. We were lucky to score a cottage (without having to break the bank) with front-row access to the beach, something that has always been on my bucket list and that I was thrilled to cross off.  This week has been very refreshing and just what I needed - a getaway, a break from it all, a retreat with family with no thoughts of work, to-do lists, and chores getting in the way. The island sure runs on its own time. The streetlights aren't turned ON at night to avoid attracting turtles too far from their ideal nesting place. There's the alligator crossing time at night when they go from pond to pond visiting friends (and hence tourists are advised to stay home when it's dark).

In my TBR this month | Nonfiction November

This is the last week of Nonfiction November - this may only be my second time actually following through for all four weeks of this event. Which is great - because I discovered some amazing blogs and several excellent nonfiction titles this month.

Doing Dewey is hosting the week and she's asking - 

It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!



I picked up a ton of recommendations this month - these six are the ones I am most looking forward to reading. 


Pandemic Solidarity by Marina Sitrin and Rebecca Solnit - discovered over at Monika's Lovely Bookshelf - she has several similar books recommended in her post, and I'll admit I TBR'd almost all of them. 

Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth - Unsolicited Feedback has several other books on this topic but this one in particular caught my eye.

I Have Something to Tell You by Chasten Buttigieg - this isn't a new to me book but reading about it on Based on a True Story made me want to read it myself.

Wham! by Andrew Ridgeley - Almost every song by George Michael takes me through nostalgia lane - I can probably tell you where I was when I listened to some of his songs for the first time, and so I was glad to see this book mentioned at books are my favourite and best

There's no Such Thing as Bad Weather by Linda Åkeson McGurk - only the day before I saw this book on Paperback Princess did I learn about this Scandinavian saying "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes" on a knitting podcast. Obviously, as a knitter, that quote speaks to me but I also loved all the other meanings this quote could have.

The Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett M. Graff - this is also not a new to me book but I appreciated the reminder at Helen's Book Blog and hope to pick it sooner rather than later. 


What's the number one nonfiction book you discovered this month?
