Books of 2022

My 2022 reading list contains sixty-six titles. I read fewer books than the past two years, but that’s a good thing. As the pandemic lessened its grip, I was able to venture out more, which resulted in less reading time. I’m grateful to have reading as a lifelong hobby. Books have enriched my life in many ways, and I look forward to the ones that have yet to be discovered and devoured. I hope 2023 provides you with the time to lose yourself in a good book or two or twenty. Here’s my list:
