Nonfiction November – Waiting for Snow in Havana


In addition to blogging my heart out for NaBloPoMo this month, I will also be focusing my reading on nonfiction for Nonfiction November, co-hosted by Lost in Books.

A couple months ago I scored some great nonfiction books from Goodwill and many that would be perfect for our Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge. I have decided to focus this month on reading Waiting for Snow in Havana by Carlos Eire. Winner of The National Book Award, Waiting for Snow in Havana is a memoir of the author’s childhood in Cuba and his exile in the 1960’s when he and 14,000 other children were airlifted to the US to escape the Cuban Revolution.

Since Savvy Working Gal, one of my co-hosts for the Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge is also reading this book for Nonfiction November, be sure to check out her blog too. We will be posting discussion questions along the way and hopefully have a Twitter chat to discuss the book at the end of the month. Read along with us if you like and stop by to answer the questions when you have read it. Like our challenge, it’s an easy-going kind of readalong.

If you like reading about different countries and cultures, be sure to sign up anytime for our Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge where you set your own timeline and goals. It’s a great way to travel the world on a budget!

Are you participating in Nonfiction November? Will you join us for our Waiting for Snow in Havana Readalong? What books do you have to recommend that were set in Cuba? Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
