German Literature Month & Non-Fiction November

November is one of my favourite months and I’m extremely glad that so many bookish events are being organised in the bookish side of the internet. I have decided to participate in two this time around but I don’t want to be too ambitious with my TBR lists because I’m the worst in time management.


Starting off with German Literature Month, I have two books lined up:

  • Memoirs of a Polar Bear by Yoko Tawada
  • Letter from an Unknown Woman by Stefan Zweig


As for Non-Fiction November, my list comprises of the following:

  • No Time to Spare by Ursula Le Guin
  • Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life by Ruth Franklin
  • Why Read the Classics? by Italo Calvino

I’m very excited about both events and, of course, I’ve already started my reading πŸ˜‰ Are you participating in any of those events?

  1. I’m participating in Non-Fiction November, I have never heard of German Literature month, I’ll have to keep an eye out for that next year

    • It will actually be released on 5 December! It’s some of her blog posts assembled and re-ordered thematically, but her writings are always a pleasure to read πŸ™‚

  2. Good luck with these events and happy reading! While I’ve not officially signed up for Non-Fiction November, I do hope to continue my non-fiction reading and hopefully get something posted during the month πŸ™‚
