My goal for 2022 was to read 22 books. I only managed 9. Have you heard people say that having 3 kids is significantly more difficult than 2 kids? It’s 100% true. We’re out numbered. It didn’t help that the 3rd kid was sick a lot (4 ER visits plus a 6 nights in a hospital for COVID, RSV, and a Rhinovirus). I also started a new job in March.
So I’m shooting to read 15 books in 2023. It feels optimistic, but I need some optimism in my life.
Here’s the list of books I read in 2022, organized by date read.
Where the Deer and the Antelope Play: The Pastoral Observations of One Ignorant American Who Loves to Walk Outside by Nick Offerman
The End of Everything by Katie Mack
A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr.
Children of Ruin by Adrian Tchaikovsky
One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak — I went into this thinking it was going to be real stories, sorta like David Sedaris novels. It was not.
Cosmos by Carl Sagan
The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan
The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green — I loved this.
Dawnshard by Brandon Sanderson
