This week's Nonfiction November prompt, hosted by Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves, is to pair a nonfiction book with a fiction book. Here's a couple of thoughts based on books that I'm reading right now:
This month I'm reading The Stand, by Stephen King, which is one of his most popular novels. It's about a plague which kills all but a small population of people. I think it would be well-paired by non-fiction books about devastating diseases. I haven't read either of these two books, but have heard they're great. They are The Hot Zone, by Richard Preston, which is about the Ebola virus; and The Great Mortality, by John Kelly, which is about the black plague. My final fiction pairing would be Doomsday Book, by Connie Willis. I LOVED this book when I was a teenager.
