You have found the right spot for this week’s Nonfiction Monday round up.
The theme for this edition is “Gems from the Internet.” Let’s see what shiny treasures the prospectors have found for us.
Jeff at NC Teacher Stuff has found a diamond in the rough with Witches: The Absolutely True Tale of Disaster in Salem by Rosalyn Schanzer.
Lisa has gotten out there early and brought in the sparkling ruby Big Wig: A Little History of Hair by Kathleen Krull (at Shelf-Employed).
At Nonfiction Detectives, Cathy and Louise have dug up the amethyst Mysterious Bones: The Story of the Kennewick Man by Katharine Kirkpatrick.
Jennifer contributes the dazzling opal from Jean Little From Jazz Babies to Generation Next: The History of the American Teenager by Laura Edge. Although the outside is pretty, Jennifer was disappointed with the inside.
