At the beginning of a new year, I am in need of a new list of books to read between now and the end of May.
Like many people, I'll still be doing most things from home for at least the first part of the year, which hasn't necessarily translated to any more free time than pre-COVID times, but I nevertheless look forward to setting aside time to read.
I greatly enjoyed the books on my fall list. And now it's time to figure out what to read next.
Among others that I may get to, here's what I'm planning:
- Infinite Baseball: Notes from a Philosopher at the Ballpark by Alva Noe
- Eccentricity: A Spirituality of Difference by David Arthur Auten
- Part-Time Is Plenty: Thriving without Full-Time Clergy by G. Jeffrey MacDonald
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- Coffeeland: One Man's Dark Empire and the Making of Our Favorite Drug by Augustine Sedgewick
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
- A Promised Land by Barack Obama
- Morita Therapy and the True Nature of Anxiety-Based Disorders by Shoma Morita
- Tao of Jeet Kune Do by Bruce Lee
- Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones by James Clear
This list is a little more diverse in genre than past lists have been. But I only consider that a good thing.
What are you planning to read to start the year?
I have some suggestions if you need them.
