One of the most awesome things about the book blogging community is all the events that you can participate in. Here are a few that you can join in November.
Oct. 28 – Dec. 1. NonFiction November is a month dedicated to celebrating nonfiction. Every Monday, one of the hosts will post a discussion question and a link-up for sharing your responses, plus your non-fiction reviews. Every Friday, there will be a round-up post sharing highlights from your posts that week. The topics are Your Year in Nonfiction, Book Pairing: pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title, Be The Expert / Ask the Expert / Become the Expert, Nonfiction Favorites and New to My TBR. You can also participate on Instagram and Litsy using the hashtag #NonficNov
