Hello hello!!! November is marching right along, though I’m grateful that we still have a little more than a week left until December makes it’s arrival. This is the last week of Nonfiction November hosted by Kim, Becca, Lu, and Katie. I don’t think there’s a topic this week and I’m not participating in the readalong of I Am Malala, so I thought that I’d celebrate this week with a giveaway!!

My favorite nonfiction title of the year (and one of my top favorites for the year) is Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed. While this is a book of advice–people wrote in the Dear Sugar (Cheryl Strayed) asking for help and suggestions–Strayed’s answers are so incredibly rich and touching and raw and real that I was immediately drawn in…both to the book and inward towards my own emotions and experiences.

So…if you are interested in receiving your own copy of Tiny Beautiful Things to see what it’s all about, please complete the form below. This is an international giveaway and I will giveaway your choice of paper or electronic copy (sorry, no audio for this one). The giveaway will end 11:59pm (central) Saturday November 28th.

You don’t have to be a follower to enter–though kisses if you are! You do, however, have to be 18 years old to be eligible.

Have you read a particularly touching nonfiction book? What’s the latest nonfiction book you’ve read?

    I have read a lot of non fiction. My fav is Rachel Held Evans’ Searching for Sunday.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you & your beautiful family.I read Missoula by Jon Karakeour an eye opening look at rape on campus heartbreaking.

  3. I agree with your thoughts on this wonderful book! I was thinking about maybe getting a copy for my non-reading daughter (since I think it’s something she could pick up and put down, reading a chapter here and there), but now I’m thinking maybe I’ll just get her a copy of Strayed’s new book, Brave Enough. Have you read it?! I’ve glanced at a few pages (sneaking a read at work when I can!) and I love her views on life.

    Anyhoo, my last nonfiction read was Find the Good: Unexpected Life Lessons from a Small-Town Obituary Writer by Heather Lende. I thought it was pretty good, but not as good as her earlier memoir, Take Good Care of the Garden and the Dogs.

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, my dear friend. I’m sure the next few weeks are going to race by in a blur!

    A wonderful, emotional and unforgettable non-fiction book which I enjoyed greatly was Safe Passage by Ida Cook. Thanks for this great feature and giveaway.

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! It’s one of the few I’ve purchased brand-new just to have in my own personal collection after reading it from the library. (Usually I buy books at used bookstores and library sales – brand-new is not my thing as much, so it has to be really special to get that treatment!)

  6. Thanks for this giveaway. Lately I have heard so much about this book that I have put it on hold at my library but the book is likely going to be available much later only.

  7. Thanks for the giveaway! I swear this is going to be among my first 2016 reads. Last nonfic I finished as The Underground Girls of Kabul – shocking and kind of depressing really. Sounds like the oppposite from this book!

  8. I don’t read tons of nonfiction (or even as much as I’d like to), but you’ve read about this one soooo much! I’m curious.

  9. I’m currently reading Concussion and it is fantastic! I had no idea that it would be this fascinating; I also enjoyed Find Your Way by Diana Nyad this month. Thanks so much for the giveaway; hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

    I also love Tiny, Beautiful Things, and I highly recommend the audiobook version also (narrated by Cheryl Strayed). I recently enjoyed The End of Your Life Book Club, by Will Schwalbe, on the books the author read and discussed with his mother during her treatment for terminal cancer. His mother was an inspiring person.

  11. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while, so thanks for the giveaway! Have a great Thanksgiving holiday.
