52 Books in 52 Weeks
I love books! No great secret I guess and I'm sure I am not alone in my love of the written word. I'm one of those people who always has half a dozen books beside my bed and find that I am buying the next book (or books) long before I have finished what I already have on my reading list. As regards this particular predilection I know I am in good company, in fact, there is a word for us - Tsundoku - a Japanese word that refers to the practice of buying more books than you can possibly complete.
Well, I aim to try and fix that - for the 2022 year I have selected 52 non-fiction books from my existing collection (OK I allowed myself ONE last trip to the bookstore and added two new ones, PLUS I have the joy of a December birthday so received some lovely books from family and friends so those are on the mix as well), and I plan to read one book a week and then share the book report as a short podcast and infographic each Monday starting 10 January 2022. There is no cost to you for accessing this content - just signup below and I will send you the links each week (no spam, no selling). I have a varied and I think interesting list of books for the year - some old, some new, and a few all-time favourites to re-read. To prepare for this I (of course) read two useful books that I can recommend; Speed Reading by Kam Night and How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler & Charles van Doren. I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
Book List for 2022
Below are the books I have selected to read - these are in no particular order and I will let my interest guide me in the choice from week to week.
