New to My TBR: What nonfiction have you added to your toppling TBR pile this month? Be sure to credit which bloggers you heard about titles from (if you can remember)!

I added several items to my To Be Read list on Goodreads, but the one I’m most excited about is The Secret Lives of Codebreakers: The Men and Women Who Cracked the Enigma Code at Bletchley Park by Sinclair McKay. I’ve been fascinated by Bletchley Park since I was a freshman computer scientist student. With few female role models in my profession, the story of unnamed women working with early computers to help win the war fascinated me. The Bletchley Circle, shown on PBS this spring, reawakened my interest. So, I’m primed to read this book. Thank you Karen of Candid Diversions for including it among your other great picks for pairings of fiction and nonfiction books.

Thank you to Kim of Sophisticated Dorkiness and Lu of Regular Rumination for running Nonfiction November. It was everything I hoped for when I first heard about it. Fun, low-key, and inspiring!
