Non Fiction November

This year I planned to participate in Non Fiction November. Leave it to me to very late to the party! Well, I joined up at Goodreads, even though it’s this late in November.

This November I read and reviewed the following and I’ll finish it up with a book about astronomy.

Ghost Signs by Frank Mastropolo

The Year of the Dog by Vincent Musi

If You Lived Here You’d Be Home by Christopher Ingraham

Dark Skies is a Lonely Planet publication and creates a guide to astrotourism.  It is divided into categories such as stargazing, meteor showers, eclipses, launches. space flight and best of all (to me) dark places.  If you live in or near a city you probably have light pollution that keeps you from seeing some of the night sky.  In a truly dark place you will be gobsmacked by the stars and celestial sights.

It’s very unlikely my husband and I will get to many of these places but it certainly gives a proverbial bucket list for places in the USA to travel and stargaze.

This would be a lovely book to gift for your astronomy minded friend or family member this Christmas. The photos are great and it has very detailed resources.

That’s my roundup for Nonfiction November!

    • That’s great they acre about the turtles and have the laws. I’m guessing that’s why the dark sky restrictions. We saw some beautiful skies in Chiefland when we camped Thanksgiving.
