Also, I ordered a bunch of books from Better World Books the other day.

So obviously, I won't read everything on this list. It's just a selection of the non-fiction titles on my bookshelf I could choose from for Non-fiction November. I've got a good mix of Jane Austen stuff, Social Justice stuff, prison stuff, History stuff, and some self-help.

There are some reading prompts associated with the month. Basically each prompt consists of two words and you choose a book that relates to one of the words. I'm pretty sure I can find books on this list that will work.

  1. Past time or Pastime
  2. Self or Shelf
  3. Wander or Wonder
  4. Micro or Macro
