Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

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?
