Some 'firsts' in this new-normal world | Weekly Snapshot

I almost didn't make it here today! It's been an insanely busy week that's going to continue into today. Life This week has been a combination of busy at work and busy at home. The kids did not have school on Monday, which is also typically my busiest day at work. So when Monday ended, I felt as if I sucked at both life and work. The rest of the week was better - at least I was able to keep work and life separate.  This weekend just happens to be one of those when I have so much to do - thanks to the many tasks and chores deferred from previous days/weekends. We were getting quotes for some home improvement projects, had to start prepping rooms for my parents' arrival next month (mainly because I still haven't moved my daughter's online school materials out of the room from the Fall school year), and do lots of seasonal shopping.

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?
